General Information

Certificate applications are submitted at the beginning of the term during which the student expects to complete the certificate requirements. For the Deadline Dates, please check Important Deadlines.

The Certificate(s) CANNOT be posted to the student's record until after the end of the term during which it was earned.  This usually occurs during the second or third week following the end of that term. It could take longer if the student took a class that ends beyond the end of the term, as all grades must be posted. It could also be delayed if the student has an "Incomplete" to clear or has submitted a grade change request.

The certificates are mailed approximately two months after the end of the term. The approximate availability dates are as follows:

Summer: mid October

Fall: late February

Spring: late July

Course Substitutions for Certificates

Course Substitutions are intended to meet emergency situations. Substitutions are not usually granted more than one semester in advance. Course Substitutions are applicable in situations where the student believes he/she has taken an equivalent course or when a required course is unavailable and an equivalent needs to be recommended. The Division Discipline Group MUST approve all certificate substitutions.
