Hi Melad, Great question!

San Diego State University is a properly accredited -- regionally accredited -- online college. They are a publicly funded university.

However, their graduate certificate online in green industry practices is a non-credit program.

This means these online courses do not award degree credits and cannot be applied to any degree.

These are professional continuing education courses, great for anyone looking to gain career education in the green industry sector.

If you are looking for a credit bearing program look here:

Online Sustainability Certificates
Online Environmental Science Certificates

Penn Foster is also a great, regionally-accredited option. 


All the Best
