Buffalo, NY, July 09, 2013 – Bryant & Stratton College Online, a leader in online associate’s

insurance agencies and saving and loan companies processing financial transactions and
generating reports. The College is currently enrolling students in its new degree program. Classes
will begin in September 2013.

Students who enroll in the AAS FISS online college degree program will learn skills that
prepare them for careers such as finance service representative, customer service representative,

goals,” said Scott Traylor, Campus Director for Online Education at Bryant & Stratton College. “The
AAS FISS degree will give students the chance to learn how to calculate complex mathematical
questions, complete fundamental accounting transactions, and adhere to current legal regulations
that are necessary to succeed in the financial services industry.”

The AAS FISS degree program will teach students how to process client financial transactions,
generate reports that support client needs, judge appropriate ethical behaviors that follow the
laws and regulations applicable to the financial services industry and formulate useful solutions to
clients’ financial and business related needs. Additionally, in the program students will learn
employability skills like information literacy, critical thinking and written and oral
communication, among others, that will help them be successful in the workforce.
