Add-on certificates

Columbia College offers several certificate programs that can help you focus on specific topics of interest and set you apart in the workforce. A certificate program can also be a great stepping stone and introduction into a degree program.

Applying for a certificate is the same process as applying for admissions at Columbia College. You'll use the same application, just make the appropriate selection in the online form. If applying for a business-related certificate, be sure to select “non-degree seeking.” Other types of certificates are listed as certificate options on the application.
