Academic Noncredit Certificates are offered in collaboration with University of Utah colleges and departments to deliver high-quality, traditional classroom experiences in a flexible, affordable and easy to access format. These noncredit certificates utilize existing for-credit classes which means you'll be learning from the same instructors that teach in our degree programs.
Certificate students go through the same classroom experience as for-credit students including exams, projects and assignments; making for a robust and engaging learning experience.
For those who don't need to take the courses for credit, there's a significant advantage with tuition that is typically 50% lower than for-credit tuition. Please note that these courses are not available for students already admitted to the University of Utah. Upon completion, certificates will be noted on official University of Utah transcripts. You'll also be awarded a digital badge that can be shared electronically.
Academic noncredit certificates offer a unique hybrid educational experience that delivers University of Utah expertise to those wanting to expand professional opportunities.
