Non-credit certificates authenticate a learning experience that does not involve university credits that could be part of a degree. Non-credit certificates do not appear on a transcript. Non-credit certificates are of two overlapping kinds: those that testify merely to participation and those that are professional in nature.

Non-credit certificates must be reviewed unless excluded by the OSU Board of Trustees and the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission.

Non-credit certificates are not transcript-visible, but will be reviewed if they require any credit courses (XX 001-899) or have other official OSU visibility.
