Earning the Certificate

Both certificate programs and specializations award a certificate of completion. To earn the certificate, you must adhere to your program's attendance policy and successfully complete all required courses.

If you are enrolled in a noncredit certificate program or specialization, you must receive a grade of SC (successful completion) in all required courses to earn the certificate. Some credit certificate programs require that students earn a minimum grade in each course and/or maintain a minimum cumulative GPA to earn the certificate.

You will receive your certificate in the mail eight to 10 weeks after successfully completing your final course.
