University College awards advanced and graduate certificates in many specialized areas of professional and personal development. All certificate programs are credit-bearing and vary in length and requirements. For those that include 18 or fewer units of credit, all course work must be completed at University College. To receive a graduate certificate, students must have earned a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher for all courses taken. To receive a Certificate in Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Study, students must have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher for all courses taken.

All units from graduate certificate programs may count toward the unit requirements for a master's degree with the same program title. Students completing both a Certificate in Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Study and a Master's Degree in Biology must complete a minimum of 6 units beyond the requirements for the master's degree. For all other graduate certificate programs, if a student is pursuing a graduate degree and a certificate, the student must complete a minimum of 9 units beyond the requirements for the degree.

Applicants to graduate certificate programs should have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution and a minimum overall GPA of 3.0.
