New Certificate Requirements


Certificate Creation Process

Below is the general flow of the certificate creation process.

  1. Program Director notifies IT of the new certificate, and provides the below information via email.
  2. IT generates a Jira ticket for the request and adds it to the work queue. 
  3. If required, IT creates prerequisite items for new course(s) (costing unit, 3-letter code, tuition profiles, etc.)
  4. If required, Program Director proposes all new courses in Destiny and notifies IT once all are Final Approved.
  5. Once courses are Final Approved and marketing deliverables are received, IT creates the certificate for internal viewing.
  6. IT sends the completed, internal certificate to the requester and marketing for final review.
  7. Once approved, the certificate is set to Public and the process is complete.
