A few important notes:

  • Many schools offer a special tuition rate for online courses.  Check with the school to see if you qualify for lower in-state tuition.  
  • A few programs use quarter hours.  These have been “converted” to semester hours for easier comparison.
  • You will need a four-year bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution for admission to most graduate certificate programs.
  • Some institutions are restricted from offering online courses to residents of certain states.  Check to see if your residency impacts your admissibility.
  • All information is subject to change at any time so check the school’s website to ensure you have the most recent information.
  • Listings do not include certificates specifically intended for K-12 teachers or programs in related, but different fields such as Human Performance Technology.  The rankings DO include certificates not called “Instructional Design” as long as they have an instructional design component.  Be sure to determine the focus of each certificate so you can decide if it is right for you.

  • See a broken link or want to provide a program update?  Know of another instructional design certificate that should be added to the table?  Let me know
