Graduate certificate admission is limited to domestic students. Students that plan to study on an F or J Visa may apply to graduate programs only.

  • Master's degree holders only need to submit transcripts from previous graduate programs.
  • Applicants with an undergraduate GPA below 3.00 should submit a statement of purpose and a resume.
    The statement of purpose should address the circumstances that may have led the applicants to poor academic performance, what had changed and why they think they'll be successful now.
