You can take individual online courses without applying for the certificate.

Students with a Bachelor’s degree or higher can take UConn’s online Clinical Communication & Counseling courses as “Non-Degree” students. The “Non-Degree” designation allows students to take courses for credit without being formally admitted to UConn. 

A maximum of 6-credits (two certificate courses) can be taken as a “Non-Degree” student and applied toward this certificate program. If you decide to matriculate into the certificate program in the future, course credits are transferable if you receive a “B”.
