BCBA Certification

Become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst

This certificate provides a verified course sequence (VCS) to satisfy academic course requirements for candidates seeking to become a Board Certified Behavioral Analyst (BCBA). The Behavioral Analyst Certification Board (BACB) has approved the following sequence as meeting the coursework requirements for eligibility to take the BCBA examination. Applicants will have to meet additional (non-Gonzaga University) requirements to qualify for BCBA certification.

All courses are delivered face-to-face on our campus. Before enrolling into any courses, a brief application and advising interview with our faculty is required.
