Nassau Community College microcredentials are high-quality educational opportunities that can help advance your career with less time and financial commitment than a formalized degree or certificate program.

All Nassau Community College microcredentials consist of at least two courses and 6 or 7 credits that follow Nassau’s Fall, Spring and Summer semester calendar.
