Non Degree Program 

Workforce and Professional Development

The UOTP workforce and professional development courses provide non-degree programs designed to assist you to prepare for University coursework and/or enhance career skills. These programs assist students who are not seeking a degree but offer excellent exposure to career fields that are highly skilled and high demand. Students receive a transcript awarding non-academic credit for courses completed. We offer individual courses and certificates in a variety of in-demand areas.

Workforce and professional development courses are available to anyone in need of career training and continuing education.  In terms of flexibility, courses are delivered in online and on-site formats. In addition, some of our online programs and courses are entirely self-paced. These courses do not follow the traditional UOTP term calendar; however, all courses do have a specific starting and ending dates. To enroll today, please complete a non-degree application.
