​Certificate Application Procedures

  1. Students who believe they qualify for a certificate will obtain an Application for a Certificate of Achievement or Skill Certificate on-line.
     
  2. Students will print out a copy of their unofficial transcript by accessing Banner Web and will attach the unofficial transcript to the application.
     
  3. Students will also print out a copy of the Certificate Requirements page for the certificate for which they are applying by accessing the General Catalog and will attach the Certificate Requirements page to the application.
     
  4. Students will turn in completed applications with all attachments to the appropriate dean's office.
     
  5. The dean's office will log the application and send it to the appropriate faculty member or division chair to review. If the student has not met the qualifications, the faculty member or division chair will inform the student. If the student has met the qualifications, the faculty member or division chair will sign and forward the application packet to the dean for signature.
     
  6. The dean's office will forward completed application packets to the Admissions and Records Department for processing.
     
  7. The Admissions and Records Department will scan the documentation, record the awarding of the certificate, print the certificate and forward it to the vice president of academic services and the superintendent/president for signatures.
     
  8. Certificates will be sent back to Admissions and Records, where they will be held for pickup. If a student chooses to pay for mailing, those arrangements can be made by the student with the Cashier's Office.
