Certification for Credit

Turn your industry credentials into college credit.

At NEIB at Cambridge College, we recognize that our adult learners come to us with significant career accomplishments including professional certifications from leading organizations like the Project Management Institute, Society for Human Resources Management, Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics, Institute of Management Accountants, American Hospital Association and more!

While our graduate programs are already designed to help you complete your degree quickly, by taking advantage of our Certification-to-Credit program you can not only further decrease your time to complete your degree*, but also reduce your tuition costs and minimize duplication in what you learn.

Depending upon your program of study, credits can be applied toward major course requirements or electives. And there’s no cost to you for any credits you are awarded based on our Certification-for-Credit program.

Ready to learn more? To start, please check the list below to see if your certification can be used toward a graduate business degree at NEIB at Cambridge College. Then, talk with our Admissions Department for details on when/how these credits are applied. It’s a conversation worth having so that you can get the credit you deserve!

*In accordance with accreditation guidelines, a maximum of 6 credits can be earned by our Certification-to-Credit program.
