Are you an educator looking to develop expertise in a specific content area? Numerous certificates are available that are transferable to a degree program. Most certificates are 9-12 graduate-level credits and are open to educators with a bachelor's degree. Some certificates may only be available to teachers in particular districts or CU Denver master's students in certain degree programs as noted. Click on the certificate links below for specific requirements. Please contact us to request the most up-to-date information.
The certificate will appear on the student's transcript upon successful completion of the course unless the student is already enrolled in an SEHD degree program. If a student is currently enrolled in an SEHD degree program and is taking certificate courses, the certificate will appear on the student's transcript if no more than 3 credit hours are used to meet degree requirements. Our nationally and internationally recognized certificates are exceptions to this policy, this includes the certificate for Applied Behavior Analysis.
Students must have a grade of C or better in all classes applied toward their certificate and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (B average) or higher for the certificate to be transcribed. Particular district-related certificates require a grade of B or better for certificate transcription. In some cases, courses with a grade of C may not count toward a master's degree, depending on specific degree program requirements.
