Certificate Programs are primarily business and technical programs for students desiring education beyond high school. These programs provide opportunities for students to prepare themselves for a wide variety of careers. In most cases these programs are planned without regard to transfer schools; however, many courses are transferable to four-year colleges or universities if students change their educational goals.
Certificates of Achievement shall be issued upon request by the Office of Admissions and Records to students who qualify for them by completing one of the occupation-centered curriculums. The student must have a grade of "C" or better in all courses constituting the certificate program.
To earn a certificate, students must complete the number of units required by the division. No certificate shall consist of less than 12 semester units.
To earn a certificate that requires only 12 units, all courses must be completed at Glendale Community College. Students pursuing certificate programs of less than 18 units are not eligible for financial aid.
Note: (ND) - Non-degree certificate: This certificate does not satisfy the major requirements for the Associate in Science degree.
