Graduate Certificates

Graduate certificate programs are short graduate-level programs that focus on a specific area of study or specialization to meet the supplemental education needs of professionals. Some certificate programs or courses may also be transferable into Masters degree programs at UCCS, so they can be a first step for someone that is unsure if they want to enter a full graduate degree program.

In 2011, the Department of Education issued new regulations pertaining to Gainful Employment programs (marked GE below). The regulations are posted to the Federal Register; the scope incorporates UCCS certificate programs. For more information, please visit Institutional Research, go directly to the IFAP website to review all regulations and guidelines, or contact us directly if you have questions or concerns. All other certificates listed are considered course of study.
