An Outlier certificate is a specific course sequence designed to put you on the right track to achieve your academic or career goals.
The certificate itself is issued by Outlier and is not accredited. However, all of the courses included are accredited by the University of Pittsburgh and are fully transferable to the school of your choice.
We’ve just launched several new certificates for students:
- Data Science Prep (3 Courses: Precalculus, Calculus, Statistics)
- College Foundation (4 Courses: Astronomy, Psychology, Microeconomics, Precalculus)
- Business Foundation (4 Courses: Microeconomics, Financial Accounting, College Writing I, Intro to Business)
Outlier certificates offer the same flexibility and affordability as our individual courses, but you’ll save money by purchasing the courses as a certificate bundle. You’ll have 2 full years to complete your certificate.
You can take multiple courses at once or spread them out - the only exception is that you must take sequenced courses in a specific order (such as Precalculus before Calculus).
After you complete all the courses with a grade of ≥70%, you’ll receive a shareable certificate of your accomplishment! You’ll also earn transferable credits for each course, putting you ahead of the game.
If you’ve already taken 1 or more of the courses in a certificate sequence and are interested in taking the remaining course(s) to earn a certificate, get in touch with our Student Success team.
We’ll be launching a number of new certificates in the coming months. To view all available certificates, visit our website for the most up-to-date offerings!
