Degree Seeking Students

Students already enrolled in a graduate degree program at UM-Dearborn may declare a CECS graduate certificate to supplement their primary field of study or area of expertise. Students must complete at least 6 credit hours in their graduate degree program before applying to a certificate program. In order to declare a certificate, students must fill out a Declaration of Certificate Form and return it to Extended Learning & Outreach located in room 2000 Professional Education Center (PEC).

Please note: For certificates offered in conjunction with majors offered through the Rackham School of Graduate Studies, not more than one-sixth of the credits required for the graduate degree may be double-counted with a certificate. Specific rules regarding the duplicate use of credit hours are available at the Rackham Graduate School website at http://www.rackham.umich.edu/.

Non-Degree Seeking Students

Students may also pursue a graduate certificate as a non-degree seeking student. Students pursuing this option should complete the Graduate Certificate Application for Non-Candidate for Degree Students. Because of the relatively few credit hours required to earn a certificate, credits earned at another accredited institution, including another University of Michigan campus cannot be transferred into the UM-Dearborn CECS certificate program.
