There are two types of for-credit certificates:
Category 1: is a post-baccalaureate, stand-alone certificate that normally requires completion of an undergraduate degree, or equivalent, for admission.
- Successful completion of the certificate is recorded on the academic transcript;
- Students are registered as undergraduate students and receive a parchment at Convocation.
Category 2: is a certificate that is offered in conjunction with an undergraduate degree program; they require students to be enrolled in a specific University of Toronto undergraduate degree program.
- Successful completion of the certificate is recorded on the academic transcript as a component of the undergraduate degree;
- Students do not receive a separate parchment at Convocation.
