Do I have to take the certificate courses for a grade?

For certificates at the Undergraduate level, classes must be taken for a grade and require a minimum grade of C of higher.

I've completed my courses to earn a certificate. Is there a form to fill out?

  • Once you've completed the course requirements for your UNDERGRADUATE certificate program, submit a Certificate Completion Form. The Program Manager will verify that you've taken the required courses and received a grade of C or better. Your certificate will be processed and mailed to you at the address listed on the completion form.
  • Once you've completed the course requirements for your GRADUATE certificate program, please contact your advisor.
