Fordham University's GSS Continuing Education Department is pleased introduce you to our CASAC Certificate Program.  


Program Structure

The Fordham CASAC Program is constructed as a year-long program with three 15 week semesters and three courses each semester. 
Classes are held on Wednesday or Thursday evenings (6PM-9PM) and all day Saturdays (9AM-12PM & 12:30PM-3:30PM).

Please view the Curriculum page for more information on semesters and individual courses. 

Each course is offered only once per year, therefore if a course is skipped or failed, the student will have to wait until the following year to complete it.  Standard program enrollment is full time however part time enrollment is possible on a case by case basis.  

The program utilizes a letter grading system which is calculated based upon class participation, attendance, and competency in course assignments. 

Program Cost

Full program cost
 is $4,500 which is broken down as $1,500 per semester.
***We are able to accept educational vouchers from a variety of sources such as ACCES, Americorps, and Veteran’s Affairs (contact us for other sources).***
