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.
