Online Courses – Visa Requirements
No visas are required for certificate programs held entirely online.
A review committee evaluates applications and selects program participants based on admission requirements. We let you know whether you are accepted, wait-listed or not accepted within two weeks after we begin the application review.
We'll send you first-term course information when you're accepted to the program. The deadline for your first-term course fee is two weeks before the class begins.
Sometimes when certificate programs fill up, we change the program status to waitlist. You can still apply to programs with this status. Our waitlists have no more than seven students over the enrollment maximum. If you are on a waitlist and not offered a spot in the program, you can defer your enrollment to the next offering.
We notify you of successful or unsuccessful completion when you finish a course. Your performance is evaluated based on standards established by the instructors and advisory board.
Most courses are offered in sequence once a year. You need to successfully complete a previous course before you advance to the next one. You earn a certificate by regularly attending classes and completing required courses and assignments. You will receive a certificate in the mail six to eight weeks after completing the last course.
