Certificate Requirements The one-year certificate will be awarded to students who satisfy the following requirements:

  1. 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.

  2. 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 specific courses.

    Repeated courses may be counted only once toward graduation unless specified in the course description or unless specifically required in a program curriculum.

    Students who are pursuing an MHCC certificate at MHCC who have earned a baccalaureate degree or higher from an accredited institution of higher education will have satisfied the general education requirements for the certificate. However, students must complete or have completed the program specific general education course requirements within a certificate.

  3. Achieve an MHCC cumulative grade point average GPA of 2.00 or higher.

  4. Maintain a 2.00 GPA for all courses being applied toward the certificate and maintain a 2.00 GPA in the candidate’s major classes.

  5. Satisfactorily earn 24 credit hours at MHCC and be in attendance at MHCC the term in which the certificate is completed. Non-traditional credit (College Level Examination Program, Advanced Placement Program, Challenge, Experience-Based Credit, International Baccalaureate) does not satisfy this requirement.

  6. Complete the application process two quarters prior to the quarter of completion (i.e., spring term graduates must apply during fall term).
