Professional Education

NIU Continuing and Professional Education is committed to offering a variety of professional credentialing programs online, in-person and hybrid formats.

We are continuingly investigating the creation of NIU certificate programs that offer to teach skills that can aid in advancing or expanding career options. Non-credit certificate programs can also offer a pathway to a pursuit of a university degree.

Please reach out to us at NIUCPE@niu.edu or call 815-753-5200 if there is a particular certificate program you are interested in or would like NIUCPE to offer.
