A limited number of students each year may be admitted to special courses of study for which certificates of completion may be awarded. Admission to a certificate program is in no way an indicator of future admission to a degree program. Students in the Certificate program are not eligible for financial aid, except for international students admitted through specific ELCA or other exchange programs. In most cases, international students, other than those just noted, cannot be granted visas for participation in this program.
The Certificate will be earned after the successful completion of at least 24 course units. No courses may be received by transfer or cross-registration at other institutions. The particular program of courses will be chosen in consultation with the student’s faculty advisor, based on the student’s individual vocational/professional goals or personal interest. Anglican students, in particular, may take specific courses to receive a Certificate of Anglican Studies.
