About Graduate Certificates
A graduate certificate represents completion of a set of courses that provides mastery of a specific area of knowledge. A graduate certificate indicates an advanced, focused inquiry into a defined area of study and is recorded on the student’s transcript. For a degree student, a graduate certificate may indicate an area of specialization; for a professional, a graduate certificate may provide evidence of special expertise.
Applying to a Graduate Certificate Program
All students who intend to pursue a graduate certificate must complete the online application for graduate admission. A student who is admitted to a graduate degree program is not automatically granted admission to associated graduate certificate programs (including embedded certificates). Students enrolled in a graduate degree program who intend to pursue a graduate certificate must apply to add the graduate certificate program.
Students admitted solely to graduate certificate programs:
- are not candidates for a degree
- are not assured future admission to a degree program
- are not eligible for financial aid
- are limited to the maximum number of hours required for the graduate certificate
For information about graduate certificate admissions, visit the Office of Graduate Admissions.
For additional academic policies regarding graduate certificate programs and requirements, see the Graduate College Bulletin.
Note: Under INS regulations, international students may not be eligible to apply solely for a graduate certificate. Students should contact the International Student Services office at (405) 325-3337 for additional information regarding regulations for international students.
Graduate Certificate Program Report Forms
Students admitted to a graduate certificate program must turn the Graduate Certificate Program Report form in to the Graduate College no later than the final semester of certificate coursework.
All forms are in fillable PDF format. You will need Adobe Reader to fill out the forms—using Preview or browser plugins may cause errors.
