In addition to individual courses, Outlier also offers several certificate options. Read this article to learn more!
What is a Certificate?
An Outlier certificate is a specific course sequence designed to put you on the right track to achieve your academic or career goals.
The Outlier courses that comprise a Certificate sequence will earn you transferable college credits (3 per course) from the University of Pittsburgh, an accredited top 60 US school.
However, our Certificates of Completion are granted solely by Outlier and aren’t currently accredited. That said, they are shareable on your LinkedIn Profile and resume and offer proof that you’ve completed - and passed - a sequence of academically rigorous courses with us.
Our current certificates include:
|Certificate||# of Courses||Courses Included|
|Data Science Prep||3||Precalculus, Calculus, Statistics|
|College Foundation||4||Astronomy, Psychology, Microeconomics, Precalculus|
|Business Foundation||4||Microeconomics, Financial Accounting, College Writing I, Intro to Business|
How Does it Work?
Outlier certificates offer the same flexibility and affordability as our individual courses, and you’ll have 2 years from the date of purchase to complete your certificate coursework.
You can take multiple courses at once or spread them out - the only exception is that you must take sequenced courses in a specific order (such as Precalculus before Calculus).
After you complete all the courses with a grade of ≥70%, you’ll receive a shareable certificate of your accomplishment! You’ll also earn transferable credits for each course, putting you ahead of the game.
If you’ve already taken 1 or more of the courses in a certificate sequence and are interested in taking the remaining course(s) to earn a certificate, get in touch with our Student Success team.
We’ll be launching a number of new certificates in the coming months. To view all available certificates, visit our website.
