LSU's MicroCred® program is your opportunity to gain applicable knowledge in a convenient format online. They are designed for individuals who want to gain a new set of skills to immediately apply in the workplace. Each program is made up of a series of two to five related courses on a specific topic. When those courses are successfully completed, you can earn a digital badge unique to the program that can be shared online on platforms like LinkedIn. Badges are distributed through Acclaim by Credly. Additionally, LSU Online offers MicroCreds® with credit that can be applied toward a degree.
Because our programs are 100% online, we provide a convenient option for working professionals to document the qualifications they earn.
Our programs are either self-paced or term-based and can be completed much quicker than a traditional certificate or degree program.
You are in control of which specialization you want. You can earn MicroCred in your own field of study or you may want to explore a new skill.
