Frequently Asked Questions

How often do I need to be online for the online program?
You must be online sufficiently throughout each week to participate in threaded discussions and to complete all assignments by their designated deadlines. However, there is no prescribed amount of time or designated time that you will be required to be online because assignments and their deadlines will vary throughout each nine-week course.

Are scholarships available?
Several types of financial aid, ranging from federal loans and state grants, to fellowships and scholarships, are available. Learn more about the financial aid opportunities available to you.

Will I have to complete any part of my Online Certificate in Gifted and Talented Education at an APU campus location?
No. You can complete your GATE certificate entirely online. No campus visits or meetings are required.
