Online Project Management Certificate ProgramFrequently Asked Questions

FIU Executive Education offers non-credit certificate programs to allow business professionals to enhance their professional development. Therefore, at the conclusion of our program, you will receive a digital certificate of completion from FIU Business. Our programs do not award college credits and may not be taken as a part of a current academic program in which you may be enrolled. The registration and payment for our programs are handled directly through our website. Any programs that are taken through our office will not appear on MyFIU, and will therefore, not appear on your transcript. In addition, you will not need to apply through the university as a whole and with an application fee.

Since our Online Project Management program is a non-credit certificate program, there are no requirements or pre-requisites that must be met before taking the program. This includes test scores, transcripts and GPA requirements. However, if you are taking a program with FIU Executive Education in preparation for a certification exam, registration for the exam may have certain requirements. In this case, please check directly with the certification entity to ensure that you have met their requirements to register for the certification exam.

Registration for our programs is relatively simple, in that you are registering directly for our certificate program and do not need to register through the university as a whole. To register for a particular program, please click on the “Register Now” link on the specific program’s webpage.

Our programs do not typically charge an application fee.

Through taking a non-credit certificate program, participants will not be official students in the sense that they will not be awarded a “Panther ID” number or Student ID. With this being said, participants will therefore be unable to access the FIU Library, FIU Gym and other similar amenities.

International attendees are welcome to enhance their professional development by participating in FIU Executive Education programs. Program modalities are conveniently set to fit the schedules of busy professionals. Programs are typically delivered either live/virtual (cohort) synchronous or fully online (self-paced) asynchronous. We may also offer in-person programs. Please refer to each program’s Delivery Method listed on the program’s home page.

Student Visas: Continuing professional education programs are non-credit and non-degree programs; therefore, they do not qualify for US student visas. To attend in-person programs, international participants usually need tourist visa. When necessary, our office may present an official letter from FIU to confirmed participants which that may be used in support for obtaining a tourist visa.

If for any reason you do not pass the CAPM or PMP Certification Exams, it is our policy that you may retake any of the program sessions with our office.

To retake the sessions during the next program offering, please contact our Program Coordinator for Open Enrollment Programs directly.
