Certificate Programs

Graduate Certificates

Graduate Admissions Committees meet on an ongoing basis. Admission is normally granted for September, January, and May of each year.

A complete application for admission to a graduate certificate must include:

  • A completed Application for Graduate Admission
  • Three letters of recommendation. It is required that one be an academic reference if you graduated or engaged in post-graduate education in the past three years
    • You must supply the name and email address of at least 2 recommenders in order to submit your application. The third recommender can be added after submission. Your application will not be reviewed for admission until all three recommendations have been received.
    • Applicants to graduate certificates offered by the Department of Computer Science are required to submit only two letters of recommendation to be reviewed for admission.
  • A self-evaluation (short essay discussing your motivation for study)
  • A current résumé
  • Official transcript(s) from each college and graduate school attended
  • A nonrefundable $25 application fee

Transcripts and letters of recommendation can be added to your file after submission.
