Why pursue a short-term credential, certificate or professional certification?*

Education is the surest path to economic advancement in the United States today. Non-degree programs in the form of micro-credentials, certificate programs and professional certifications are increasingly in high-demand by employers.

Did you know adults without a postsecondary degree who hold a certificate or certification have higher full-time employment rates than their peers with no credential?

Adults who earn a credential have a median income of $45,000 versus $30,000 for those without a credential.

For some occupations, the income premium from a certificate or certification is as high as $25,000 per year.

Earning a certificate or credential from Cleveland State University means your employer will trust your new expertise because of CSU’s reputation for innovative collaboration in the workforce and professional development with business, industry, and government and for its reputation as a critical, regional force for education excellence.
