Certificate degree

If i were to apply to take classes to get a certificate, after im done, can i continue to take classes at that same college? Or would it count as me obtaining a type of "degree" and I would have to resume classes for my actual major at a different school?


  • Hello Priscilla

    If you complete one certificate program you can continue taking other courses to complete another certificate or Associates Degree at your community college. We recommend making an appointment with a counselor to assist you with planning your courses with an educational plan in order to find courses that may be used in more than one degree or certificate program and be able to possibly reduce the number of courses that would need to take.
