Minimum Requirements for Occupational Endorsement: 15 credits

The financial services representative program provides education and training to qualify students for customer service and teller positions in banks, credit unions and other financial institutions. This 15-credit occupational endorsement may be earned in one semester and represents half the credits required for the applied business management certificate in finance. Upon completion of the course work, students may enroll in BA F253--Internship for an optional additional 1-3 credits and get practical work experience in a financial institution.

This program is open to students who can document a high school diploma or GED. To be hired in any financial institution, graduates must be able to pass credit and criminal background checks. Applicants must be 16 years old to be admitted.
