Short-Term Certificate

Short-Term Certificates — Short-Term Certificate programs are designed for students to develop skills for immediate entry into business, semi-professional, supervisory and technical workforces. These Coastal Alabama Community College programs are structured to take less than a year to complete and are comprised of one or two semesters.

Two and four-year degree transfers after earning Short-Term Certificates are possible, but more difficult due to curriculum design. Students seeking a two-year Associate’s Degree, or a four-year Bachelor's Degree, are encouraged to consider A.A. or A.S. degree paths.
