Affordable and Flexible Format
With just four courses, the Professional Communication Certificate can be completed in just two semesters (or four, seven-week sessions). All of the courses for the certificate program are available 100% online. We offer rolling admission, so students can start at the beginning of any seven-week session. There’s no need to wait for the start of an official semester—you can begin earning your certificate when you’re ready.
Professors schedule assignment deadlines, but coursework and readings are done at a time that best fits your schedule. There are no live classes or scheduled meeting times, which means our programs work for working professionals.
Courses in the UWO+ program are stackable, which helps you complete your certificate sooner! Students in the UWO+ program can enroll in one or more courses each semester, and the accelerated format means you’ll take fewer courses at the same time.
At UW Oshkosh, student support is at the heart of all that we do. We offer career guidance, personal support and flexible learning opportunities. UWO+ programs offer high-touch support services, so whether you need technical assistance with the learning platform or help with your assignments, we are here to help you succeed.
UWO+ programs are strategically priced to reduce financial risk and investment for students who want to see how online courses fit into their schedules. The certificate program is priced at $220 per credit, and the certificate program consists of nine credits.
