Participants begin and end a course on the same dates, and interact on a daily basis with faculty and one another asynchronously through a discussion board. Students pursuing either certificate take the same courses and have exposure to the same academic content and interaction with faculty. The essential difference is that students working towards the Professional Certificate take courses on a non-credit basis and do not receive a grade, while those seeking the Graduate Certificate take courses for academic credit and receive grades that appear on an official transcript. Students pursuing the Graduate Certificate will be required to complete additional assignments designed to both promote and assess mastery of the course content.
