Graduate Department Certificate Program

Admission Requirements

All applicants will be reviewed in an individual and holistic manner. No single factor will determine a student's admission. The Program Chair and appropriate committee carefully evalutate all qualified applicants with regard to the applicant's potential for successful completion of the program.

Transfer Credit

The Program Chair will award credit based on the applicant's previous academic preparation and/or competency in required courses. Deficiencies will be met by applicant's enrollment in required courses.

Generally, credits earned at an accredited college or university are accepted for transfer credit provided course content is equivalent. A grade below B is not acceptable for transfer credit.
