Our certificates are intended especially for working professionals and others who need a flexible means of taking courses and documenting the qualifications they give you. The courses in this certificate also earn you college credit, so your certificate could also start you on the path to a credit certificate or a college degree.

You may start any course for this certificate at any time. Admission to LSU is not required.
