Critical Information

The following are the minimum requirements for an Undergraduate Certificate:

  • An undergraduate certificate may only be offered with or after a baccalaureate degree. It cannot be a ‘stand-alone’ certificate provided to students who are not pursuing or have not previously earned a bachelor’s degree. For students pursuing an undergraduate certificate concurrent with a bachelor’s degree, the certificate will be awarded upon graduation. 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 with a baccalaureate degree must apply to the certificate program through the Office of Admissions.
  • An undergraduate certificate will consist of at least 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 fulfill major, minor, or general education requirements.

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