Noncredit Certificates

Noncredit certificates are earned credentials that document learning. They demonstrate to employers and supervisors that you have studied a body of knowledge or have mastered a practice or methodology.

Our certification programs, and those of our online partner providers, are centered around the core mission of the University of Richmond as a liberal arts institution. The topic areas covered by our certification programs complement the curriculum of the University and the needs of students, staff, faculty and alumni at a liberal arts college.

The University of Richmond issues many of our certificates. Some of our certificate programs, our Financial Planning Certificate program, offer coursework toward a nationally-recognized certification by a governing body, resulting in designations like CFP® (Certified Financial Planner™).

We encourage you to browse certificates available through classroom-based and online certification Think Again programs. We offer many additional certificates online through our partners in online learning.
