FAQs

What are the starting dates for the FAU cannabis certification programs?

The next start date is July 20. Beginning in September, all programs will commence on the first Mondays of September (9/7), November (11/2), January (1/4) and March (3/1).

What is the registration deadline?

Students can register until the last day of the first week of a given course, i.e. for courses beginning on July 6, students may register through July 11. However, we recommend registering prior to the start date of the course.

Are FAU’s cannabis certificate programs designed for students to work at their own pace?

Yes, but with some structure. New course material is made available weekly for the duration of each program. Student study is primarily asynchronous (i.e. you may study at a time suitable for yourself). Students are required to pass online tests to progress through the program. You may “catch up” at your own speed, however you cannot progress through the course faster than the weekly release of new content.

How long does the program take to complete?

Each certificate consists of three eight-week courses. The certificate takes approximately six months in total to complete.

What type of qualification is associated with FAU’s cannabis certificate programs?

Students who successfully complete each program will receive a certificate from Florida Atlantic University Center for Online and Continuing Education.

Are scholarships or financial aid available for FAU’s cannabis certificate programs?

Scholarships and financial aid are not available at this time.
