Certificate programs are designed to respond to focused professional development demands. They are especially useful in addressing the skills and knowledge working adults need to advance in their professional careers with a high degree of flexibility.
Certificate programs are classified as non-degree and therefore federal financial aid is NOT available for students in these programs. Individuals must qualify for admission as non-degree students.
Each certificate program has a designated director who is responsible for administering the program and for providing students with materials that clearly describe the program's requirements, policies, and procedures. Ultimately, the program director determines when the student has met all requirements and awards the certificate.
Students in certificate programs are eligible for UNK student ID cards and can access campus services available to degree-seeking students, such as the library and the MyBLUE student portal.
For detailed information, guidelines, and requirements of UNK's Certificate Programs, please see the Academic Affairs page.
