The University of North Georgia offers a Gerontology Certificate. This program is designed to enable students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, non-degree students, and residents of the community to obtain a certificate in two to three semesters. To receive the Gerontology Certificate, students must successfully complete 15 credit hours of coursework. Applicants interested in receiving graduate credit for the certificate should apply to Graduate Studies as a non-degree student.
Financial aid is not available for certification programs.
Recently enacted federal regulations requiring enforcement of state laws regarding the delivery of distance education degrees, programs and courses to students whose physical presence is in a state other than Georgia may limit UNG's ability to offer online opportunities to these students. If you wish to enroll in one of our online offerings and are located in a state other than Georgia, please inquire before applying to determine if we have acquired permission to offer online courses in your state. You may email your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address is exclusively for questions regarding state approval of online offerings. Other inquiries should be directed to the academic department offering the online program or to Graduate Studies.
International applicants who must be issued an F-1 visa by UNG to enter the United States and to attend school may not apply for completely online programs or part-time programs (less than nine hours fall and spring semesters).
