All participants who successfully complete the course requirements will receive a certificate in “Home Horticulture”. In order to earn the Home Horticulture certificate, you must pass all 12 quizzes (one per module) with a grade of 7 or higher and complete 12 of the activities (one per module). You do not need to take the final exam in order to receive the Home Horticulture certificate; the final exam is optional.

To receive certification as a Clemson Extension Master Gardener requires additional work, all of the above, in addition to passing a statewide exam and fulfillment of the volunteer service component of the program in a Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service Office. If you wish to go on to receive Master Gardener certification, then let your instructor know. He or she will make sure that you’re put in contact with the appropriate Clemson Extension Agent to connect you with our existing volunteer networks.
