If you're not ready to pursue a graduate degree but still want to increase your knowledge and improve your skills, you can earn an advanced certificate or take courses through non-degree study.

Advanced Certificate

Students in the advanced certificate program need to complete only 15 credits with a minimum GPA of 3.0 to receive certification. And if you decide to continue your graduate studies and pursue a master’s degree, the credits may be carried over.

Non-Degree Study

Elmira offers the opportunity to take graduate-level classes without pursuing a degree or certificate. If you decide to earn a graduate degree, the credits earned in non-degree study will apply toward your chosen master’s program.
