Degree and Certificate Programs

Technical Certificate

Preparation for Specialized Employment

Florida Community College provides a number of educational programs of less than two years duration for which technical certificates are awarded upon satisfactory program completion.
In some cases, the technical certificate can be an intermediate step toward the associate in science degree in the particular area of study. Students can then build upon that technical certificate to accomplish the A.S. degree.

Graduation Requirements

In order to be awarded a technical certificate, students must have met the following requirements.

  1. Earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C) on all courses attempted at FCCJ.
  2. Completed the required courses as set forth in the College catalog or as approved by the assistant dean of the area.
  3. Students who place into college preparatory courses are required to complete designated college preparatory courses with a grade of “C” or better regardless of program of study.
  4. Completed at least one-fourth of the total hours required for a certificate in residence at FCCJ. Before students may graduate, they must have fulfilled all financial obligations to the College.
  5. Apply at the beginning of the term in which you will complete your certificate requirements.

Note: Students are cautioned to pay particular attention to the following statements.

  1. Graduation dates will be the date at the end of the College term in which students complete the academic requirements for the degree or certificate for which they are applicants. (The removal of an incomplete grade does not affect students’ graduation dates, since the grade change is effective at the end of the term in which the incomplete grade was assigned rather than the term in which the incomplete work was made up.)
  2. If students expect to complete the coursework under the terms of the catalog in effect during the term of their first registration, they must graduate within five years or they will need to be reassigned to an active catalog. Accordingly, students who enter under this catalog (2002/2003) must graduate by the end of the Summer Term 2007, or they will be required to consult with their academic program to determine the appropriate active catalog placement. Changes to requirements as mandated by law or by rule of the FCCJ District Board of Trustees may supersede this provision.
