Credit for Industry Standard Certifications

Turn your industry credentials into college credit at UMGC Europe.

UMGC accepts several industry-standard certification examinations for college credit. Students should arrange to take the examination through the organization awarding the certificate. Documentation of the certification must be submitted within 5 years of taking the examination.
