Graduate Certificates

All graduate certificates consist of 12 credit hours. Students can be admitted to the university as graduate certificate-seeking only. Classes earned toward a certificate can also be used toward a graduate degree if the student chooses to continue into the 36-hour graduate program. To apply for admission into the graduate certificate programs, students should still fulfill all graduate admission requirements and follow all graduate admissions application steps. At the time of application, students can select their degree as a graduate certificate instead of a master’s program.

All graduate certificate programs require an overall 3.0 grade point average and a grade of at least a B in each required class. All course work for certificates must be taken in-residence; transfer credits from other institutions will not apply towards certificate programs.
