Non-Degree Certificates

The Wheelock College of Education & Human Development offers non-degree certificate programs in the following areas:

Prior to enrollment in a certificate program you must apply and be admitted. The admissions process for most certificate programs is rolling: applications are processed and reviewed for admission as they are received. Submitting a complete application by the recommended deadline will ensure that a final decision is made prior to the start of classes for that term. Read more information about the application process, deadlines, and policies for the graduate certificate programs.

If you would like to enroll in a non-degree certificate program, please review the information below. You may begin a certificate program during the summer, fall, or spring terms. Please note, the summer term is divided into two terms: Summer 1 and Summer 2.

All certificate programs are considered to be graduate-level programs of study. In order to be eligible for a certificate program, you must hold a bachelor’s degree or an international equivalent from an accredited institution prior to enrollment. Because these are non-degree programs of study, they do not offer student visa sponsorship. Consequently, international citizens may only apply for these programs if they already possess an immigration status allowing them to study in the United States.
