Post-Baccalaureate Certificate


Description of Program


The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program is designed for students who have completed their bachelor’s degree and are seeking academic expertise through a graduate level certificate program. In order to earn a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate, students must complete three courses (9 credit hours) within the chosen Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program. With the exception of the General Business specialization, each Post-Baccalaureate Certificate is prescribed, meaning students can only take what is listed for the particular Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (students may not substitute alternative courses). Students must complete all three NCU courses with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better in order to receive the certificate.

Basis for Admissions


Admission to the Post-Bachelor’s Certificate program requires a conferred bachelor’s level or higher degree from a regionally or nationally accredited academic institution.

Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Transfer into a Master’s Degree Sequence


  • Coursework completed within a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program may be applied towards the specialization sequence within a master’s program.
  • Applying Post-Baccalaureate Certificate coursework towards a master’s degree is contingent upon coursework and degree relevance under the most current master’s degree program version.
  • Applying Post-Baccalaureate Certificate coursework towards a master’s degree may only occur once during a student’s tenure.

Specialization coursework completed as part of a master’s degree, where a degree was conferred, cannot be applied towards a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program. However, a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate can be completed as part of master’s coursework, assuming the student officially applies for the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate prior to completing the fourth course in the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate series.

Time to Completion


NCU allows 2 years to complete all certificate programs.

The median time to completion for this program is 9 months.

Time to completion varies depending upon the pace in which a student completes courses and the number of transfer credits accepted. As most NCU students are working adults, balancing educational, professional, and personal commitments, our academic and finance advisors will work with you to develop a program schedule that works best for your needs.

Students following the preferred schedule designed by the Dean for this program, and applying no transfer credits, can expect to finish in as little as 6 months.
