Opportunities to Boost Professional and Personal Skills
Target Skills with Micro-Credential Opportunities!
Post University is all about making your education personal. Many of our degree and certificate programs offer options to help customize your learning experiences to your goals, including elective classes, available concentrations, and micro-credential opportunities.
What Is a Micro-Credential?
Micro-credentials are opportunities to build specific skills. They come in a variety of forms—from specialized technical skills like Google Analytics or CompTIA IT Fundamentals to professional skills that can be applied in any industry, such as interpersonal communication or negotiating.
These micro-credentials generally require a validating effort—frequently an exam or acknowledged completion of a class—that a third party attests to and affirms. A resume-ready digital badge is often awarded to provide proof of knowledge for a specific skill.

As part of their educational program, degree-seeking and non-degree-seeking students may have the opportunity to earn additional credentials in the form of a micro-credential. These micro-credentials can be awarded by either Post University or a recognized third-party industry authority. As these credentialing opportunities are embedded within the respective class’s coursework, they may require an exam, including an exam from a third-party organization, to earn the micro-credential. Like any grade earned from an exam offered within a class, earning a micro-credential will result from the student’s performance on the exam. As such, Post University does not guarantee that each student will receive any micro-credential offered by either Post University or an outside organization.
