Candidates for the Certification of Professional Achievement Program must complete the program of study as defined by the appropriate department.

I took my first CVN class and it took up every minute of my spare time, but I learned a tremendous amount and that is GREAT !!! The professor I had was very good, he explained extremely well, taught us how to apply the things we learned, and was very fair with the tests. The teaching assistant always answered questions fast and he was very helpful. This program enables me to focus my time on learning what I want to learn and not spend unnecessary time traveling.

Admissions Requirements

Applicants to the Certification of Professional Achievement Program must submit official transcripts, 3 letters of recommendation, personal-professional statement, resume, and the $150 application fee.

Program requirements for completion of these Certification Programs are listed below:

  • 4 Graduate-level classes all earned through CVN, as a non-degree student.
  • Minimum of 12 credit points
  • Minimum GPA of 3.0
  • Completion of program within two (2) calendar years.

Credits earned to fulfill the requirements of a Certification Program may be applied toward an MS degree in the same field of study, subject to the approval of an academic advisor. However, students must apply for admission to the University and meet all admissions requirements. Entry into and completion of a Certification Program does not ensure acceptance into an MS program.

Students that begin their studies at Columbia University under non-matriculated status through CVN must continue to take all of their coursework through CVN. When applying for admission to a degree program, students must submit all of their application materials directly to Columbia Video Network for processing. Applications that are sent directly to the Office of Graduate Student Services or submitted online via the ApplyYourself Application form instead of CVN's forms will result in total forfeiture of all credits taken under non-matriculated status through CVN. All Columbia courses to be used towards a student's program must be completed via CVN. Also note that any student taking courses through the auspices of CVN can take on-campus courses solely under the administrative guidance of CVN with advisor approval.

To enroll in an on-campus course, please send an email to: registration@cvn.columbia.edu
