Graduate Certificate Program Requirements

Admission: Each graduate certificate program may determine eligibility standards beyond the minimum for admission to and enrollment in the Graduate School.

Credit Requirements: The requirements, including the minimum number of credit hours, for certificates vary among graduate certificate programs. Please visit the web site or contact the program director for more information for the certificate program of interest. All graduate credit earned at UMSL for a graduate certificate that also fulfills the requirements for a MS or doctorate degree may be applied to that degree upon approval of the program director.

Filing a Program Plan: A graduate student enrolled in a certificate program is required to file a certificate program plan with the Graduate School before completing the first two-thirds of the number of hours required in the program. Changes made in a certificate program plan after it has been filed must be submitted to the Graduate School.
