Certificates and Specializations
The My Certificates and Specializations link on your Student Portal can help you to monitor your academic progress. Once you have completed your final courses, your UCLA Extension program representative will verify that you have met all program requirements.*
The UCLA Extension Office of the Registrar will produce your certificate or award of completion (for specializations) and mail it to you within two weeks of receiving verification from your program representative that all requirements have been met.
