The one-year certificate will be awarded to students who satisfy
the following requirements:
Successfully complete all required courses in a one-year
certificate program as listed in the catalog.
Courses counting toward degree requirements must be taken
sequentially if the course is a prerequisite for another course.
For example, MTH095 may not count toward a degree requirement
if taken after MTH111, because MTH095 is a prerequisite
for MTH111. However, if a course is not a prerequisite for another
course, the courses may be taken in any order. For example,
HST110 may count toward a degree requirement if taken after
HST111, since HST110 is not a prerequisite to HST111.
All programs of study of one academic year or more in
length for which certificates are granted require a recognizable
body of instruction in program-related areas of
1) communication, 2) computation (mathematics) and 3)
human relations. Please refer to the individual program for
Repeated courses may be counted only once toward graduation
unless specified in the course description or unless
specifically required in a program curriculum.
