Online Undergraduate Certificate

Choose a UMGC Asia certificate program to develop credentials that will help set you apart from the crowd.

University of Maryland Global Campus Asia offers programs of study leading to lower-level certificates in specific academic areas including accounting foundations, computer studies, foreign language area studies (Japanese and Korean), and management. All requirements involve lower-level courses, although appropriate upper-level courses may be substituted.

These certificate programs are not terminal programs if you wish to continue working toward your associate's or bachelor's degree. You may pursue a degree and certificate(s) simultaneously or pursue a degree after completing the certificate(s), but the application for any certificate(s) completed while in progress toward the associate's or bachelor's degree must be submitted before award of the degree. If you apply for your certificate after your degree has been awarded, additional coursework will be required to complete the certificate. Contact your academic advisor for more information.


Common Certificate Requirements

  • You must be admitted as a UMGC student.

  • You must complete a total of 18 credits, including at least 9 credits with UMGC.

  • You must complete all required coursework with a minimum grade of C (2.0) in all courses. Certificate courses may not be taken as pass/fail.

  • You must earn a grade of C or better for all courses used toward a certificate.

  • At least half of the total credits you use for any certificate must be earned through graded coursework.

  • You may not use the same course toward completion of more than one certificate. In cases where the same course is required for two certificates, you must replace that course with an approved substitute for the second certificate.

  • No more than half of the total credits for any certificate may be earned through credit by examination, prior-learning portfolio credit, internship/Workplace Learning credit, or transfer credit from other schools.
