Sacramento City College offers two types of Certificates.
Certificate of Achievement (COA) is offered to students who complete the program requirements. Certificates of Achievement (12 units or more of degree-applicable courses) are intended to certify that students completing all required courses for a major are prepared to enter the careers designated on their certificates. Certificates of Achievement require grades of “C” or better in each course with a minimum of 12 units completed at Sacramento City College.
Certificates (C) are intended to certify that students completing all required courses for a major are prepared to meet specific occupational needs, upgrade skills, or for advancement in an existing career. Certificates require 11.5 units or less with grades of “C” or better in each course. The certificate requires that all courses listed in the Required Program of study be completed at Sacramento City College. These certificates are not noted on transcripts.
It is important to note that, upon completion, only certificates of 18.0 or greater units are annotated to your permanent record. Students completing certificates with less than 18.0 units will still receive their certificate by mail.
