The Graduate Certificate in Quality Assurance is designed to provide students with the knowledge and tools they need to help them understand how to increase process and product performance and to improve the quality and reliability of goods and services in any manufacturing, healthcare, and other service organizations.

Much of the resurgence of U.S. companies and service organizations in the global marketplace has been due to an increased emphasis on quality. Today's consumers are offered many alternatives to meet their needs, and they have consequently become very discriminating in their purchases. In addition, companies seek to be known as a quality organization, not merely the producer of quality products. The Graduate Certificate in Quality Assurance provides students with the knowledge they need to increase process and product performance, to improve the quality and reliability of goods and services and to institute steps to make their organizations more competitive through an overall commitment to quality.

For the Quality Assurance certificate, students complete three required courses and one elective course, for a total of 12 credit hours.

Total Credit Hours Required: 12 Credit Hours Minimum beyond the Bachelor's Degree

Please note: Quality Assurance Graduate Certificate may be completed fully online, although not all elective options or program prerequisites may be offered online. Newly admitted students choosing to complete this program exclusively via UCF online classes may enroll with a reduction in campus-based fees.

International students (F or J visa) are required to enroll in a full-time course load of 9 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters. Only 3 of the 9 credit hours may be taken in a completely online format. For a detailed listing of enrollment requirements for international students, please visit http://global.ucf.edu/.
