Certificate of Proficiency

Certificates of Proficiency are designed for the student who needs to be prepared to enter an entry-level job. Approved Certificate of Proficiency programs have less than 18 units. Certificates of Proficiency are not awarded automatically and it is the responsibility of the student to ensure satisfactory completion of the certificate requirements. When all requirements are completed with a "C" minimum grade  or in-progress students should submit an online petition for Certificate of Proficiency at www.swccd.edu/evaluations. Transfer coursework of C- does not fulfill the minimum grade requirement. These certificates will not be listed on a student’s transcript. Certificates of Proficiency are not recognized at the Southwestern College commencement ceremony.
