Certificate of Achievement

El Camino College offers a variety of certificate programs. A Certificate of Achievement is recorded on a student’s transcript. A Certificate of Accomplishment is not recorded on the transcript. Each of the programs requires completion of courses in a particular field. Unlike degree programs, courses outside the field are not generally required.

A Certificate of Achievement is awarded to students who complete the prescribed program with a 2.0 grade point average.
A Certificate of Achievement with Honors is awarded to students who complete the prescribed program with a 3.0 grade point average.
A Certificate of Achievement with High Honors is awarded to students who complete the prescribed program with a 3.5 grade point average or above.

A Certificate of Achievement will be granted to students completing the requirements in either the Engineering Technician or Engineering Technology options. At least 50% of the courses for the Certificate of Achievement must be completed at El Camino College.
