Career Link is a free, opt-in co-curricular certificate program that students in any degree program and year of studies can enroll in.

The modular, self-paced structure of the program allows for flexibility in accessing resources and supports that fit individual needs and goals. Upon registering in a “Career Link Cohort” at the beginning of each Fall semester, students will be guided through all components of the program and will have one year to participate in the workshops, events, professional development modules and advising sessions to complete the program. While some components and events will be offered live (scheduled at a specific time), most program components can be accessed and completed at any time and in almost any order.

Upon completion of all six components of the program, students earn a non-credit Career Link Certificate that is awarded at convocation and noted on the student’s academic transcript.
