The online advanced certificate in turfgrass management is a 30-credit program of study that builds on the basic turfgrass management certificate. To earn this certificate, you must successfully complete 30 required turfgrass credits.
Courses in the program cover:

The delivery method for the courses in this program is online group, with a group of students progressing together through each course. The courses are offered in a time frame comparable to a traditional semester schedule, with fixed start and end dates. To earn your certificate in a timely manner, we suggest completing three courses every 12 months.
Course content and activities are available in electronic format, and access to the web is required in order to complete this program.
While the stated requirement for this certificate is 30 credits, it may be slightly less, depending on the circumstances.
- For students with valid state pesticide licenses who have exempted from taking TURF 230, or for students who choose courses other than the 4-credit TURF 435, the total requirement is 29 credits.
- For those students who are both exempt from taking TURF 230 and who choose to take courses other than the 4-credit TURF 435, the requirement for the advanced certificate is only 28 credits.
