Our one-year certificate programs in the arts, business, and science are designed to give you a strong foundation in your intended area of study
For most university degree programs, your certificate will allow you to enter directly into your second year of study at the British Columbia university of your choice. (Since the requirements at other universities may differ, our academic counsellors can help you look at your options for universities outside of BC).
All certificate programs require you to complete 30 to 31 credits. If you have already completed some courses at another institution, you may transfer up to 18 credits toward our certificate programs. Your final three courses (9 credits) must be completed at Coquitlam College.
For students who want to apply for a second certificate, you must complete an additional two courses (6 credits) at Coquitlam College. Up to 6 credits from another institution may be transferred to your second certificate.
