Sacramento City College offers two types of certificates:
Certificate of Achievement
The Certificate of Achievement certifies that a student has completed all required courses and is prepared to enter the career designated on their certificate. Certificate of Achievement programs are developed to provide vocational training for students who are not necessarily seeking a college degree. Certificates of Achievement require a grade of "C" or better in each course with a minimum of 12 units completed at Sacramento City College.
Certificate of Recognition
Certificates of Recognition are intended to certify that students are prepared to meet specific occupational needs, upgrade skills, or advance in an existing career. Certificates of Recognition require fewer than 16 units with a grade of "C" or better in each course. At least 12 units toward the degree must be completed at Sacramento City College. If the certificate requires fewer than 12 units, then students must take the number of units required by the certificate at Sacramento City College. As long as the units a student takes are degree- or transfer-applicable, they do not necessarily have to be the specific units required for the certificate.
Certificates of Recognition are not noted on transcripts.
