UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education's "Fast Track" Certificate format is a convenient way to focus your training and quickly advance your career. But we understand that enrolling in this program is a time commitment that you may or may not be ready for just yet, which is why we created entry points in all four academic quarters. So, no matter what quarter works best for you, there is a fast track pathway for your education.

To participate in the Fast Track option, enroll in an open section, pay for the program (at the discounted Fast Track rate) and our Academic Advisers will place you in the required courses.

For students who are enrolled in a pre-pay package series of courses, requests to drop a course or transfer to a different course in the series must be received by the refund deadline for the individual course and the listed processing fee will be applied. Requests to exit a Prepay Package series of courses prior to completion may result in a refund of remaining funds after the full course fee is assessed for each class completed in the series. Contact the program coordinator to discuss changes to the Prepay Package series of courses.
