  • What Credentials or Certifications Are Received Upon Program Completion?

  • CVCC is not a credit granting institution. We are part of the University System of Ohio through which students can receive credit for certain education programs completed at CVCC. Articulation agreements are in place with degree granting institutions which give students credit for selected coursework they complete when applying it toward a degree in the same field. 

    Career Development programs have an industry credential that students acquire after completion of the program and an industry exam. 

    Career Enhancement programs prepare students to acquire or advance skills and prepare for entry level positions.  These courses do not have an industry credential offered. The student gets a certificate of completion from CVCC for the program.
  • Accreditations?
