Undergraduate Certificates

The School of Continuing & Professional Studies awards undergraduate certificates in many specialized areas of professional and personal development. Undergraduate certificate programs are credit-bearing and vary in length and requirements. All course work must be completed at the School of Continuing & Professional Studies. To receive an undergraduate certificate, students must have earned a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 or higher for all certificate courses taken. No course with a grade below C- will count toward an undergraduate certificate.

Students may pursue an undergraduate certificate on a stand-alone basis or as part of a bachelor's degree. Courses taken toward an undergraduate certificate program may be applied to a School of Continuing & Professional Studies Bachelor of Science degree. If a student is pursuing a bachelor's degree and a certificate, the student must complete a minimum of 9 units beyond the requirements for the major. The exception to this restriction on certificates applies to sequential programs of the same name, in which case all certificate courses may apply to the next-level program.

Please visit the individual certificate pages for more detailed information, requirements and policies.
