Online Microcredential Proposals

Ecampus is now piloting microcredentials, which are digital badges students earn by completing coursework that offers a specific set of skills and knowledge. Learn more about Ecampus microcredentials.


As this is a pilot, Ecampus is only accepting a limited number of microcredential proposals at this time. To be considered, new microcredentials must meet the following criteria:

  • Contain at least three (3) courses that are already developed for online delivery
  • Be comprised of at least eight (8) credits total
  • Be accepted by Ecampus and approved by the faculty microcredential review committee

The following are preferred criteria:

  • Should have minimal prerequisite courses so as to be accessible to nondegree-seeking students
  • Should be stackable to an existing Ecampus degree program

Proposals are considered, reviewed, and approved on a quarterly basis.
