Texas Tech University

Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning (MSPFP) / MSA

In partnership with Texas Tech's Personal Financial Planning department, the MSPFP/MSA program prepares students for successful careers in financial and tax planning. By completing the program, you will be qualified to sit for both the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam and the Certified Financial Planning (CFP) exam.

Program Format

By applying 12 hours of graduate coursework in accounting toward the requirements for the MSPFP and 12 hours of PFP courses toward the requirements for the MSA degree, you can complete both degrees in as little as two years.

You will work with advisors from both colleges to ensure all graduation requirements are met for each program. Additionally, you must maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher as a graduation requirement.


Applicants will need to apply to the Personal Financial Planning department and Rawls College, separately. Both schools must issue an acceptance for you to enroll in the dual degree program.
