Requirements

To enroll in a certificate program, and before receiving a certificate, you must formally be admitted. To earn a certificate, you may enroll in any course for which you are eligible. To earn a certificate, you must earn at least 30 credits, including transfer credit. Fifteen semester hours must be residence credits.
