Courses for this program are 100% online: no campus visits are required.
Students admitted to the certificate program will have nondegree graduate status but will earn graduate credit for the courses they complete. If they complete the four-course sequence with a grade of B or better in each of the courses taken, they can apply to the master's degree program of the department administering the certificate, without having to take the GRE/GMAT. Completion of a graduate certificate program does not automatically guarantee admission into a corresponding graduate degree program.
Certificate courses taken for graduate credit may count toward the student's master’s degree. Students who do not have all of the prerequisite courses necessary to take the courses in the certificate program may be allowed to take “bridge” courses at either the graduate or undergraduate level to prepare for the formal certificate courses. Check with the academic department for program-specific details and requirements. Once admitted to the program, a student will be given three years to complete the program so long as a B average is maintained in the courses taken.
