Certificate Programs

Continuing Education offers a number of program series in specialized fields in business, education, and other professions which lead to the award of certificates. Most certificate programs require 10-30 credit hours of instruction or an equivalent number of contact hours.

Admission to certificate programs varies, but is usually based on a written application, an interview with the program's developer, and an evaluation of the applicant's work experience, educational goals, and potential for performing satisfactorily in relevant courses. Applicants may be required to provide transcripts of previous academic activity. Persons interested in a certificate program should first consult with that program's director to obtain specific admission requirements.

Students in credit certificate programs must maintain an average grade of C or better to continue in the program. Admission to a credit certificate program does not in any way imply admission to the University for a degree program.

Persons enrolled in noncredit or CEU certificate programs must, in the opinion of the program's director, progress satisfactorily in their courses to be eligible to receive a certificate.

Persons interested in further information about certificate programs should contact the Continuing Education regional center in their area.
