Critical Information

Students pursuing an undergraduate certificate in conjunction with a baccalaureate degree must declare this using the major/minor declaration form. Students not pursuing an undergraduate certificate in conjunction with a baccalaureate degree are required to apply to the certificate program through the Office of Admissions.

The following are the minimum requirements for an Undergraduate Certificate:

  • An undergraduate certificate may only be offered in conjunction with or subsequent to a baccalaureate degree. They cannot be ‘stand-alone’ certificates, offered to students who are not pursuing or do not have a previously earned bachelor’s degree. For students pursuing an undergraduate certificate concurrent with a bachelor’s degree, the certificate will be awarded upon graduation.
  • An undergraduate certificate will consist of a minimum of six credits at the 300-level or above, all of which must be taken at EMU. Prerequisite or lower-level coursework may be transferred from another university or community college.
  • Credits used to satisfy certificate course requirements cannot also be used to satisfy major, minor, or general education requirements.

An undergraduate certificate must require a minimum of 15 credit hours.

Prerequisite Requirement: 3 hours

It has been determined by the University that completion of the Undergraduate Certificate in Web and Mobile Technologies as written meets the requirements for graduation. The certificate is open to all majors, except those in the Computer Information Systems Department.
