  • Professional Certification Assistance
    • In many fields, professional certification provides prospective employees an advantage in securing a job. The Career Center offers an assistance program to help students earn elective professional certifications. The program reimburses students for a portion of their certification exam or application fees. The program does not cover licensure or exam fees that are required by an industry or that would be expected as part of employment in that industry (i.e. nursing licensure or teaching licensure).
