        Certificate Details

        • Admissions


          You must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited university or college. The Graduate School will determine whether non-traditional programs are acceptable. Although, a four-year equivalent collegiate educational program is required. Appropriate work experience is desired but not required.

          How to Apply
          Start your application on the Graduate School Online Application.

          International applicants should submit all required materials at least 90 days before the first day of class of the semester in which the student wishes to begin graduate study. Domestic students should submit all materials at least 45 days before the first class day. However, most academic units make admission decisions several months in advance. Thus, applicants should check with the department to which they seek admission to determine when materials should be submitted. Contact April Hurley at for more information about deadlines.
