Computer Requirements

Although computer labs are available on campus for student use during limited hours, students will be at a significant disadvantage if they do not have access to their own computer. Specific courses, including those offered live on campus or online, require a computer. Some courses require the purchase of software.

Students may enroll in the certificate at any time before the start of a new term or semester; however it’s recommended that students speak with an advisor prior to beginning any coursework.

Course Requirements

The highly flexible nature of the certificate allows students to enroll in a variety of courses suitable to their experience and interests. Courses are available online and on campus. In all cases, students must complete five courses, for at least 15 credits, in approved computer software courses, with a minimum GPA of 2.0 in each course.
