Classification of programs and credentials

9.1 - Post-baccalaureate non-graduate short credential

This category includes short credentials for postsecondary programs that are not graduate programs and require a bachelor's degree for admission either explicitly or implicitly (such is the case for concurrent bachelor's degree programs, where the outcome of these programs is equivalent to a program requiring a bachelor's degree, but the degree is not a requirement because of the concurrent nature of the program). These are formal qualifications granted upon successful completion of programs that are shorter than programs where a certificate, diploma or degree is the formal qualification awarded.
