On-Campus Graduate Certificates

Innovative Education offers more than 100 graduate certificates – including fully online, partially online, and on-campus options – in a variety of fields. These certificates are designed to provide you with valuable educational experiences in a more accessible, focused format than traditional graduate degree programs.

The certificate is a specialized graduate-level credential reflecting knowledge of the most up-to-date research in the field. Once completed, the certificate is notated on the transcripts, and a certificate diploma is awarded to the student. Certificate completion increases your competitiveness, enhances your performance, and helps prepare you for the changing nature of business.

Certificates take one to two years to completed, depending on course load per semester and course schedule offerings. You may also be able to transfer up to 12 credits; contact your program advisor to learn more.

Some certificates can be used to meet some of the requirements of a graduate program, depending on the policies of the degree program and the university. Completion of a certificate does not imply admission to a related program.
