How to Enroll in a Certificate Program
Current Empire State College Students
Certificate requests can be submitted through the online Degree Add/Change Request Form. Once the Office of the Registrar processes your request, you and your mentor will receive an email.
Not currently enrolled?
If you are not currently enrolled, you can still register for a certificate program. Apply online for the certificate program only. Select the certificate option. Applicants to the undergraduate certificates are required to submit the same admissions requirements as the associate and bachelor’s degrees.
Certificate students who are concurrently enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program are eligible to apply for federal financial aid, while those students who enroll only in the certificate program are not.
Completing your Certificate
Once you complete all the requirements of the certificate, your mentor contacts the Certificate Program Coordinator. The Certificate Program Coordinator then does an initial review of the student record and upon finding that the requirements are complete, recommends the student for graduation to the Office of the Registrar.
