  • Students who are admitted are eligible to take an additional two courses after their required courses have been completed
  • All credits must be earned within a two-year period
  • Students must maintain a B average to successfully complete a certificate
  • Applicants should have academic credentials that are comparable to MPH students; in certain circumstances, the GRE may be requested to support an admission decision
  • Students who have successfully completed a certificate program may apply for the MPH degree or the MS program and transfer 15 credits to either program. A separate application is required to apply to the MPH or MS program
  •  A new application is required to apply for another certificate
