Advance Your Career and Education with Ashworth’s Online Certificate Programs

Do you wonder if you're ready to start college? Wish you could 'try out' college courses before enrolling in an associate or bachelor’s degree program? Aside from career training, degree and high school programs, Ashworth College allows students to earn undergraduate certificates as well.

What is an undergraduate certificate?

Our online certificate programs are designed to help students achieve various career and education goals. An undergraduate certificate is equivalent to one semester of college and credit may be applied toward an associate or bachelor’s degree from Ashworth College. Each certificate program consists of five fundamental courses that develop a comprehensive understanding of both general matter and a career-focused discipline.

At the conclusion of the five courses, graduates receive an online Undergraduate Certificate. This is an important credential that will help move you forward in your career and in life. By the time you graduate, you will have likely gained more certainty about your chosen profession or next educational step. Many students choose to continue their learning by transferring the credits earned in the undergraduate certificate program into an associate or bachelor’s degree program from Ashworth College.
