Our Legacy Campus programs offer a preferred track to prepare students for the Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credential. These registered campuses have courses covering the 10 core competencies that are hallmarks of the certification program. Student associations on each campus give our CNP candidates a place to connect, serve and learn.
All students who are in good standing with their campus pay a fee of $100. This includes access to the independent study guide, CNP Central, Career L!FT and the CNP exam. CNPs will also receive the CNP digital badge and blockchain certificate.
