Gainful Employment Disclosure
The U.S. Department of Education requires universities to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid-eligible program that "prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." Click on the Disclosure link from the list below for information about completion rates, cost and length of a program, related careers and other important information regarding gainful employment.

Graduate Certificate vs Teacher Certification
There is a distinct difference between a graduate certificate and teacher certification.  A graduate certificate is a credential awarded by UMSL.  They are managed by the Graduate School in much the same way as a master’s degree.  The table below lists all the graduate certificate programs offered by UMSL.  If you have any questions about applying for a graduate certificate, please contact graduate admissions at gradadm@umsl.edu or 314-516-5458.

Teacher Certification is a process of the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.  The state sets the requirements and evaluates applicants.  The Graduate School is not directly involved in this process.  The College of Education runs UMSL’s programs that lead to teacher certification.  If you have any questions about how to obtain teacher certification, you should contact OASIS at 314-516-5937.
