Certificate Programs

Certificate programs are a great option if you are seeking education in a specialized area. Certificate programs are a way to gain a new credential in a short-term time frame. The certificate programs offered at the University Center are post-baccalaureate, which means you must have completed a bachelor’s degree to join the certificate program. Many of the certificate programs can also be applied towards a master’s degree if you choose to continue your education.

Admission Requirements

Admission requirements vary by university and major, but usually requires some or all of the following:

  • Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended

  • Minimum GPA for prior credits

  • Statement of objectives and goals

  • Completed application and fee
