Degree programs with certificate options

Mapping a faster route to job skills

Get right to work on the courses you need for your career before you complete your degree. Our StackTrack™ options allow you to earn two credentials with no additional tuition or time. With StackTrack, up to 18 credits of your job-focused courses will be moved toward the front of your degree program. After successfully completing these courses, you’ll receive one or more certificates demonstrating your expertise. Here’s how it works:

The StackTrack™ difference 

StackTrack

  • Step 1 - Begin foundational courses
  • Step 2 – Take core courses, earn certificate(s) endorsing job skills
  • Step 3 – Complete remaining courses
  • Step 4 – Graduate with degree + certificate(s)

Traditional

  • Step 1 – Begin foundational courses
  • Step 2 – Continue foundational courses
  • Step 3 – Take job-focused, core courses
  • Step 4 – Graduate with a degree

An Enrollment Advisor can help you determine if your program qualifies for the StackTrack certificate option.
