CSUSM Extended Learning is an approved provider to offer veterans and active duty military funding options to obtain certificates for job growth or a new career utilizing their G.I. benefits. The professional certificate programs are “education to career” focused and lead to jobs. These classroom certificate programs have proven successful as career building courses and are among the more than 30 certificate programs offered through Extended Learning.
