Earn Your Certificate in 1 Year or Less
Move forward in your career quickly and benefit from having a finished certificate program in a year or less. Taking a certificate program in your chosen field of study provides a substantial advantage in the competitive job market without the extended commitment of time and money that an associate's, Bachelor's, or Master's degree program would require. Plus, if you later decided to upgrade your certificate to a degree, all credit hours at OCU earned apply towards OCU degrees. With a certificate program, you're further along in your career, your earning potential, and your future degree aspirations.
Many students are worried about accruing high levels of debt associated with a degree choice. Move forward in your career by earning a professional accredited certificate without taking out school loans. Certificate credit-hours are our least expensive option and are most likely to be paid for out of pocket with the high potential for an immediate return on investment. You could earn your certificate in less than a year and quickly benefit from new career opportunities you can pursue.
Stackable Credit Hours Apply Towards a Future Degree
Our certificate programs get you closer to your goal of an Associate's, Bachelor's, or Master's degree while providing interim accreditation for short-term benefit. Certificate programs show employers you are dedicated to improving your vocational skills. Incrementally advance in your occupation course by course with our flexible structure that allows you to weave school assignments into your work responsibilities and personal life. Enjoy the advantages of a certificate while laying plans for a future degree at the same time.
