For Certificate Students

Certificate Programs at MassArt operate through Professional and Continuing Education (PCE). With the exception of Industrial Design, all classes for certificate students are offered during the evening or on weekends. However, certificate students are matriculated MassArt students, subject to college policies and eligible for services available to other members of the college community.

Registration Process

Certificate students register via DaVinci during specified registration periods. Deadlines for payment and adding, dropping, and withdrawing from courses are college-wide, and cannot be adjusted. These dates are posted on the College's Academic Calendar.
