Certificate-seeking students follow the certificate program requirements published in the University Catalog in effect for the first semester of enrollment after acceptance. Certificate students are eligible for financial aid. Students pursuing a certificate have a university residency requirement equivalent to at least one-half of the total credit hours required to complete the selected certificate program. Specific departments may have a more rigorous residency requirement.

Students apply for a certificate following the same application process and deadline dates as students applying to graduate with a degree.
