Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need forestry field experience to apply to the certificate?

If I’m receiving a CSU employee tuition benefit for the Silviculture Certificate, will it be taxed?

What happens if I miss course content because I’m on a fire assignment or working in the field without internet access?

Every instructor will have a policy on missed assignments, so it is very important to initiate good communication and work closely with course instructors.
