Online Courses

Students have two options of payment for the online certificates: First, students can pay for all four certificate courses at the beginning of his/her first class ($699). This one-time payment is an advantage to the student as it includes a significant discount. Second, students can pay per class ($199) as they work through the four courses.  To register simply click on the link under the "current classes" tab.
