General Education (695) Certificate

Purpose: Thomas Nelson Community College is offering this certificate program to all students who have completed a prescribed number of core courses in general education for an associate degree. In part, this certificate is intended to remind students that they are well on their way to earning an associate degree, and to encourage them to continue their progress.

Students enter the General Education Certificate program by meeting the usual general admission requirements established by the College. After entering, students must next take any developmental coursework required by their placement tests. Finally, to earn the Certificate, students must complete 33 credit hours of approved college-level courses with a grade point average of at least 2.0.

Educational or Occupational Objectives: As the objective of this Certificate is to document the completion of a core of general education courses, this Certificate does not lead to a specific job or career. However, it helps affirm to potential employers that a student has a solid, valuable foundation in the skills of basic math as well as in spoken and written English.
