Certificates of Achievement/Certificate Applications
Certificates of Achievement are designed to prepare graduates for employment in specific career areas. In addition to standing alone as certificates, most of the Certificates of Achievement may be used to satisfy the requirements for an Associate degree major.
Certificates of Proficiency
Certificates of Proficiency are short-term certificates which introduce students to one aspect of a trade or occupation. In most cases, the courses completed for these certificates may be applied toward a Certificate of Achievement.
The mission of the Student Services Division is to foster a student centered environment that facilitates student development and provides services that contribute to educational achievement.
