College Credit Certificates


General Information

College Credit Certificate programs are designed for the student who wishes to quickly transition from education into work. These programs are for short time periods, generally one year or less. College Credit Certificates can stand alone or be part of an A.S. degree. A student wishing to apply for a certificate program should consult the admission section of this catalog for general admissions information. However, a student is cautioned that official acceptance into Florida Gateway College’s certificate programs is done at the academic department level.

Some certificate programs have limited or selective admissions requirements. A student is urged to consult with the specific instructional area which oversees a particular certificate for additional details.

To meet entry and/or graduation requirements, College Credit Certificate students must:

  • complete the program requirements as outlined in the program section of the catalog
  • demonstrate competence in reading, math, or language through placement examination or by passing the appropriate reading, math, or language courses, if not exempt by state board of education rule 6A-10.0315, and
  • maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average or higher in all certificate program courses and a C in any college developmental education courses which may be required for that specific program.
  • complete the college residency requirement, which is at least 25 percent of the student’s program in residency at Florida Gateway College.

A student who owes an obligation to the College will not receive a diploma or transcript until the obligation is resolved.

Certificate Enrollment & Registration

Certificate programs at the College are generally designed for full-time study. However, occasionally a program may be offered that is also applicable to part-time enrollment. A student should contact the Admissions Office for further information.
