Canvas access will end when a participant has completed the 10 course modules, or at 6 months from registration.
Participants who successfully complete all 10 modules will receive Temple University Harrisburg’s Nonprofit Management Certificate. All assignments require a minimum grade of 80% or higher to pass.
