SAN MARCOS, Calif. - June 28, 2016 - PRLog -- Saint Katherine College offers innovative programs leading to the Post-GraduateCertificate (PGCert). A wide range of entirely online learning programs are currently offered in business, global studies, leadership, science, and theological studies for students who have completed their bachelor's or first university degree. The programs focus on equipping students to master graduate-level content and the ability to think and write critically at the graduate level. PGCert programs are intended to develop new skills and build expertise in a specialized area to update professional expertise, advance a career, or broaden a student's knowledge base. The programs are also intended to introduce students to graduate-level study for the purpose of assisting them in determining whether graduate and professional studies are right for them.

Students complete four 10-week modules. Two modules are content-rich and two modules cover critical and interdisciplinary thinking and writing skills; it is intended for all four modules to be completed in 10 months of part-time study; however, students can complete the certificate up to three years after enrollment. Grading for the modules is Pass/Fail, and the PGCert is awarded after successful completion of all four modules. This is the only PGCert program that awards a certificate based on a supervised research paper or portfolio which can subsequently serve as an employment or graduate program work document.

PGCert study differs from master's degree programs. Graduate degrees require 10 to 12 courses, specific admission requirements, and a formal application. With PGCert programs requiring four modules, no admissions requirements, and no application, certificates offer a quicker path to a meaningful credential. There is no application required to pursue a PGCert but you are required to enroll. The College Registrar keeps track of your progress and alerts you to open enrollment periods and course availability. Modules are generally offered October 1-December 30 and February 1-April 30. Certificate awardees do not participate in Commencement or receive alumni status.

Because our certificates are part-time offerings and completely online, I-20 certificates for the F-1student visa are not available for on-campus study. Financial assistance for the PGCert is not available through the College. Scholarships and private student loans may be used but Federal or state aid may not because PGCerts are not degree (master's, etc.) programs and do not award academic credit.

A one-time, non-refundable enrollment fee of $50 is required; enrollment closes two weeks prior to the start date for each term (Oct 1, Feb 1). The fee for each module is $1500 (2016-17); the total fee for all PGCert programs is $6050 (2016-17). Four modules are required to earn each PGCert. Students will receive module information and registration information after they enroll.
