Certificates are a great way to expand your career opportunities, enhance your degree, and explore particular areas of interest within the College of Education. Certificate programs include a specific set of coursework that is noted on your transcript upon completion.
Admission to the certificate program is required. Students are not enrolled in a certificate program by virtue of being enrolled in related courses. Students must apply to and be admitted to the certificate program in order to be considered enrolled.
Admission to College of Education (COE) certificate programs requires submission of the Certificate Admissions Form to the appropriate department Certificate Program Coordinator (see respective certificate website link listed below for application and contact information) and the Registrar’s Office prior to the completion of two courses in the certificate program (grades posting). All coursework in a graduate certificate program must be completed with a grade of B or better (B- is not acceptable) and must be completed within 7 years of first enrolling in certificate program coursework.
After all certificate coursework is completed, but no later than 2 weeks after grades post, a Certificate Completion Form must be filled out and submitted to the department Certificate Program Coordinator. Approved completion forms will be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office for processing and posting to the official transcript.
