IAUx’s non-degree / certificate programs are designed to fulfill a specific purpose in professional or personal development – but do not result in an academic degree like a bachelor’s or master’s degree. A non-degree / certificate program at IAUx is, in essence, any course or class taken without the goal of accumulating credit hours toward a degree. Students who take non-degree program courses often desire information for general knowledge. They are lifelong learners looking to improve skills for work-related purposes. They have no intention of using the course knowledge to earn a two-year, four-year, or postgraduate degree. In fact, they often experience difficulties and disappointment if they attempt to transfer a non-matriculated or non-degree course toward a degree program.
