Certificate Programs

Most certificate programs require 30 credit hours and can be completed with two semesters of full-time study. Many certificates follow a prescribed sequence that starts in the fall semester and is completed at the end of the winter semester. It is very important that students work with an advisor, as these programs often do not provide a great deal of flexibility. A certificate is not the same as a licensing exam or certification awarded by a national or regional accrediting association, although some programs prepare students to take licensing exams or participate in certification processes.
