Graduate Certificate Programs

Graduate certificates are awarded to students who desire interdisciplinary course work to complement their graduate degree program or to students who, for academic, personal, or professional reasons, desire graduate-level education not leading to a graduate degree.

Students seeking graduate certificates must be admitted to the Graduate School in a degree program or in non-degree, category A status.

Certificate programs are not eligible for Title IV (federal financial aid) funding unless the certificate is a requirement of a degree program.  The exceptions are approved programs of at least one academic year in duration that leads to a certificate and prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. Approved programs will be designated with disclosure information on the program web page in the applicable academic college.
