Academic Regulations and Requirements for Undergraduate Certificates

In addition to the requirements presented here, students must satisfy the university regulations (see the Academic Regulations of the University section of this Calendar).


An undergraduate certificate is defined as a structured set of at least 4.0 undergraduate credits in a particular discipline or area of study that introduces the student to, or extends their knowledge of that discipline or area of study. An undergraduate certificate is a stand-alone credential that may be taken concurrently with a bachelor’s program or independently. It is normally constituted by a structured set of sequential year-level courses.
