Non-Degree Credentials

For accreditation purposes, “non-degree credentials” include a variety of programs offering narrowly focused areas of study where learners demonstrate mastery of knowledge, skills, abilities, and/or competencies. A non-degree credential typically covers more than a traditional three-four credit hour course but less content than a full degree. Non-Degree Credentials vary in content, instructional level (associates, baccalaureate, masters, etc.), length, method of instructional delivery, credit awarded, and professional or occupational focus. They may be offered “for-credit” or “not-for-credit. The method of instructional delivery may be via distance education, in person, or through a combination. In all cases, the academic rigor of non-degree credentials matches the quality of other institutional credentials, regardless of whether academic credit is awarded for instruction provided by the institution, awarded for external credit (i.e., by transfer of credit from another institution), or awarded for credit through a collaborative academic arrangement.
