Sexual Health Certificate FAQ

  1. Do I have to apply online to the Sexual Health Certificate Program?

    Yes, we only accept applications online.

  2. Do I need special equipment for this continuing education certificate program?

    Students will need access to high-speed internet and a computer with a webcam for live Q&A sessions with the certificate leader and other participants. Instructions for accessing the course website and orientation information about course technology are provided prior to the course.

  3. Do I need to send original undergraduate and graduate transcripts for the Sexual Health Certificate Program, or are copies sufficient?

    Electronic copies may be submitted with your application. If we have any concerns, you may be asked to submit an official transcript from your institution.

  4. Does the Sexual Health Certificate Program certify me as a sex therapist?

    No. You receive a certificate at the end of the program, not a certification. You can use the education hours from the program toward certification through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT).

  5. Does this continuing education certificate program provide 1098-T tax forms?

    1098-T tax forms are not provided for CE programs. Participants should talk to a tax advisor to determine if there is an appropriate way to claim their CE program payments.

  6. How are social work continuing education contact hours awarded?

    Participants requesting social work CE hours will receive a certificate upon completion of an evaluation after each individual course within the program. For more information about certificates, please see the CE policies page (

  7. How do I get started if I don't have any experience and want to be in the Sexual Health Certificate Program some day?

    Community volunteering is one way to begin. Many people begin by volunteering in a Planned Parenthood clinic, or a clinic providing free medical care, or as an assistant in a nursing home, or an HIV/AIDS wellness program. All of these would give you great training in being with people and talking and listening to people.

  8. How do I submit payments for the Sexual Health Certificate program?

    Upon admission to the program, you will receive instructions about submitting payments for the program. Payment is accepted by check or credit card.
