Certificate programs are comprehensive, career oriented courses of study not leading to academic degrees. They are offered via classroom, online, and hybrid formats, and provide entry level or advanced skill sets valued by employers in a variety of career areas. Starting Fall 2017, we will implement an application process for our certificate programs in order to provide enhanced student support services and benefits to our students who are pursuing a certificate program.
Students pursuing a UNLV Continuing Education certificate program which has multiple core course and/or elective requirements are required to register for a certificate application course to state their intention of pursuing that certificate. All students must register for the certificate application course in order to receive a certificate of completion. This applies to students who have taken courses in the past as well as to new students taking a course in a certificate program for the first time.
Students pursuing a UNLV Continuing Education certificate program which is a single course are not required to register for the separate certificate application course. Students will be enrolled in the certificate application course after the class has started.
