Microcredentials are short, focused credentials designed to provide in-demand skills and experience in a particular field. SUNY Sullivan’s microcredentials are “stackable” — meaning, they can provide a pathway to a certificate or full degree, now or when you are ready.

Microcredentials are groups of three to five courses that can be taken as a standalone program or you can stack them to create a pathway to earn a certificate or full degree. They are designed to help you quickly develop relevant skills to obtain employment or to enhance your skills to advance your career. Courses may be offered online and/or in-person depending on the microcredential program. As a student, enrolled in a microcredential program, you have access to SUNY Sullivan's academic support and campus resources.

Anyone seeking to advance their career or increase their earning potential, those needing to up-skill or make a career change, those looking to come back to the job market, and yes, those looking for fun, engaging, learning to support a hobby or interest.

Microcredentials are also suitable for current students and alumni who want to concentrate on a particular skill or area of interest. Credits earned in a microcredential program may apply toward your degree program.
