What is a micro-credential?
Micro-credentials are short, focused credentials designed to provide in-demand skills, know-how and experience. Stackable micro-credentials can also provide a pathway to a certificate or full degree, now or when you are ready.

Who can earn a micro-credential?
Current students, alumni, anyone seeking to advance their career or increase their earning potential, those needing to upskill or make a career change, those looking to come back to the job market, and yes, those looking for fun, engaging, learning to support a hobby or interest can all find a SUNY micro-credential that fits their needs.

How does a micro-credential work?
Micro-credentials often combine courses from registered degree programs, innovative applied learning experiences, preparation for industry certifications, and/or non-credit coursework. A micro-credential could be coursework alone (the most common micro-credential length is three courses), a series of workshops, or a combination of coursework and an applied learning experience or certification preparation.
