Accredited short term programs to provide critical workplace skills and can later be applied to full college degrees

Greenwood Village, Colo. – 3/22/2017 – Colorado State University Global (CSU Global) today announced that it now offers 15 new online certificate programs for graduate and undergraduate students. Each certificate is recognized nationally by educational institutions and professional organizations.

Many of these certificate programs have been approved by the Department of Education as eligible for federal financial aid, meaning students don’t have to pay out-of-pocket like they traditionally would for alternative short industry specific training programs. All online certificate programs from CSU Global are available now with the first financial aid eligible programs starting in April in the areas of cyber security, human resource management, and computer programming.

“At CSU Global, we provide career-relevant education for working adults, and we are always working to identify new opportunities for students to earn credentials relevant to their industry,” said CSU Global Provost Jon Bellum. “Our new certificate programs allow our students to increase their knowledge and quickly gain the skills they need to advance in their current jobs or transition into a new field.”

CSU Global certificates offer a high-quality, lower-cost solution to obtaining the additional education that is so often needed to compete in our evolving economy. The certificate programs can be completed in six months to a year while students continue working full time and balancing other life obligations. While shorter in duration, certificates are also designed to be ‘stacked’ together or onto full bachelor’s or master’s degree programs to demonstrate mastery in select industry areas, and to help job-seekers stand out from the crowd.
