Postsecondary programs are academic, vocational, technical, and occupational courses
of study leading to a credential. Colleges and universities have developed certificate
programs allowing students to "build" courses toward an overall certification program
- often understood as capstone. Postsecondary program courses may be offered through
modules or under the capstone concept but should not be confused with certificate
courses/programs offered through proprietary institutions at the postsecondary level.
