Medical Billing & Coding Certificate

The Medical Billing & Coding Certificate Series was created for students preparing for a career in medical billing and coding.  Developed and taught by industry experts, this series helps students logically progress through courses designed to give the knowledge needed to work as a medical biller and coder in a healthcare environment.  Students are encouraged to complete the Certified Professional Coder exam administered by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) upon completion of this program to enhance employment opportunities.  

The certificate consists of eight courses and should be taken in the order listed.  

Many of the listed courses are linked courses. Taught by credit professors, Linked courses mix credit and non-credit (CE) students in the same learning environment, ensuring the same rigorous standards are met in your education. CE students earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) instead of college credits. CE students complete a quick admission process and follow CE tuition refund guidelines.

The information on this page is for new students beginning in the Fall of 2021. For students currently enrolled in the Medical Billing and/or Medical Coding Certificates, please visit those individual pages for instructions on completing your training.
