Important Information

Eearning a MicroMasters certificate does not guarantee admission to a full Master's program. If you apply and are accepted into the on-campus or online program that is associated with your MicroMasters program, the MicroMasters credential will count toward the degree. To successfully earn a MicroMasters credential you must finish all courses/exams/projects with passing grades (determined by each university) and earn Verified Certificates for each course.

The number of credits offered varies across MicroMasters programs. Each university determines the number of credits the MicroMasters certificate will count as towards the on-campus degree.

While earning a MicroMasters certificate will give you the tools to excel in the industry and area of focus of the program, it does not guarantee you an interview or job. You can share your credential on your LinkedIn page and resume to demonstrate your accomplishments and highlight your knowledge.
