UW Colleges Online offers several credit certificate programs. While it is not required that students pursue an Associate of Arts and Science (AAS) degree to earn a certificate, some students use the certificate program to give cohesion to their electives with their AAS. UW Colleges currently offers the following certificate programs:


The Certificate in Business program provides students with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of business in the context of the modern political, social and economic environment.

Legal Studies

The Legal Studies certificate is an interdisciplinary program that explores the vital concepts of law and justice. 

Students interested in pursuing a certificate should contact their assigned academic advisor or contact the UW Colleges Solution Center to schedule an appointment with an advisor to discuss your options.
