Our graduate-level certificate programs consist of academic credit offerings concentrated in a specific area of study and focused on an area of specialized knowledge or information that has specifically defined outcomes. They are designed to provide continuing education to graduate-level professionals and to enhance the educational experience of matriculated graduate students without the commitment of earning an additional degree or post-master's certificate.
In order to apply, prospective certificate students must have successfully completed a baccalaureate degree at an accredited college or university with a minimum GPA of 2.5. After students are approved for a graduate certificate, they will register into program-approved courses as a nondegree students on a space-available basis.
