STEAM Certificate

Return to Academic Programs Offered at Pacific Oaks College Return to: Academic Programs Offered at Pacific Oaks College

Program Overview

The STEAM certificate option is available to non-matriculating and matriculating new or continuing students beginning in the Summer of 2018. This course offering is designed for participants/students to complete all four courses in the summer semester. There are options for participants/students to take less than the four courses as long as they adhere to the non-matriculating, matriculating, or space available options (see General Academic Policies).

This is a School of Education program only; all inquiries can be forwarded to the Dean of the school.

Adherence to Pacific Oaks College academic policies, such as attendance and grades, apply in order for participants to earn credit for the four courses. Future STEAM courses leading toward the certificate are not guaranteed and based on enrollment. There is no financial aid available for non-matriculating students but the certificate cost is $150/credit ($450/course) for a total of $1800 for all four courses. Prospective STEAM certificate participants may take less than the four courses at the reduced cost but a certificate will not be granted unless all four courses have been successfully completed (C or better). Courses are transferrable at the successful completion (C or better) of all four courses (see Pacific Oaks Transfer Credit Policy) and may be applied for course credit at Pacific Oaks College upon admissions into one of the BA ECE programs. Participants who wish to transfer the STEAM course credits to another higher education institution must check the transfer policies at that institution. Transfer courses and transfer policies vary by institution, catalog year, academic program, and course time limits.
