Certificates

Certificate Programs are groups of classes designed to provide in-depth study in a particular subject area. These programs are subject to continuous review to ensure that they provide the knowledge and skills required to meet current industry needs. Most certificate classes can be taken individually or as part of a certificate program.
Certificate Programs are a tangible way to demonstrate acquisition of new skills for your current career, for career advancement, or to launch a whole new career. Certificate programs are also an excellent way to network with others and enhance your expertise in a selected field.
The curriculum for each certificate program is created through the efforts of university faculty, business people, industry leaders, and University Extended Education program developers. Each certificate program is continually evaluated by these academic and industry experts who contribute their experience and expertise as Advisory Board members.
The length of certificate programs varies. Some programs are one-semester programs. Others are longer. For details and a completion schedule, please choose a specific certificate program.

All graduating students must submit a Study Plan/Request for Certificate in order to receive a certificate. Please submit the form after you have completed the last class of the program. Your certificate will be mailed to you in approximately 4-6 weeks.

Yes! Many classes can be taken individually or as part of a certificate program. You may want to take one class, and then decide to move forward to earn a certificate. The choice is yours!

We are not authorized to issue I-20s for part-time study. In general, non-credit certificate programs do not qualify as full-time study. If you are here on an I-20 and are a full-time student in a U.S. school, you can take classes in a certificate program, but it would be in addition to your full-time study.

Class Credit

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized uniform unit of measurement to record individual participation in non-credit academic, professional development educational and training programs. It is based upon attendance in non-degree non-credit academic classes of continuing professional education programs sponsored by organizations following the guidelines established by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).

The hour equivalency for reporting education and training to professional and state licensing organizations is: ten (10) hours of instruction = 1.0 CEU or one (1) hour of instruction = 0.1 CEU.

The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed significant non-credit educational and career enhancement experiences. The CEU is also used for licensed professionals such as nurses, engineers, fiduciaries, social workers, etc., who are required to submit proof of continuing education and professional development activity in order to maintain their license.

For organizations to award CEUs, they must follow the criteria and guidelines set forth by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), 1620 I Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006

Some class credits may be transferable to another institution. To be certain, you should check with the institution where you wish to transfer the credits.
Cal State Fullerton Extended Education does not officially give letter grades for non-credit and Continuing Education Unit (CEU) classes. However, we do understand that some employers require a letter grade for reimbursement. To satisfy that requirement, Cal State Fullerton Extended Education will provide you with a letter grade equivalent by mail approximately four weeks after the course end date. To report a missing letter grade equivalent, please e-mail UeeInfo@fullerton.edu
