AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT ARLINGTON

Certificate Programs

The certificate programs provide opportunities for post-graduate training to those with undergraduate degrees in science or engineering. Certificate programs are narrower in scope and shorter in duration than MS graduate degrees. Students who desire further education beyond the certificate may apply 12 hours of coursework taken during the certificate program towards a Master's degree, subject to approval of the Graduate School.

Admission requirements

Students admitted to certificate programs are allowed to take specified courses within their program, but may not take courses outside their program. To be accepted into a certificate program, students must have achieved at least a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) out of 4.0 in their previous undergraduate or graduate coursework, as calculated by the Graduate School. Students not having a 3.0 GPA may still be admitted if further review of their academic credentials indicates that they have a high likelihood of successfully completing the program. Students in the program must maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 in their coursework in order to receive the certificate.
