FAQ for Nossi’s Certificate Programs

Is financial aid offered for certificate programs?
Financial aid will not be offered. This program is a certificate program and not a degree program, therefore, financial aid will not be available.

If I take Nossi’s Certificate Program, will I get course credit?
You will not receive course credit on your college transcripts when you graduate from the certificate programs. Although this certificate will not transfer to other colleges, it will provide a path for Nossi students to seek additional degrees in a shorter amount of time. If you are interested in future degree opportunities, please ask your admissions representative how this may apply to you.

Will I need a computer for the photography program?

Will I need a computer for the UX/UI program?
