What is a Microcredential?

A microcredential is a short program that quickly allows you to gain relevant skills that are needed in today’s workforce.

Microcredentials are often structured in groups of three to five courses that can be taken alone or can eventually be “stacked” to earn a degree or certificate. They are designed to help you quickly develop relevant skills to prepare for entry-level employment or per-diem work and can help you gain additional training to advance your career if you are already employed.

SUNY Oneonta’s microcredentials can help you bridge the gap between college and a career, giving you a competitive edge before completing a degree program.

What is a Digital Badge?

Digital badges enhance your professional image and online visibility by showcasing your specialized skills and achievements for prospective and current employers.

You maintain control over how your badges are displayed, making them a valuable addition to your online profiles and resumes. Each badge you earn is part of your personal journey of professional advancement, empowering you to confidently display your ongoing learning and expertise.
