General Postgraduate Certificate Information

Admissions Requirements

To be unconditionally accepted into the postgraduate certificate program a learner must hold a conferred graduate degree from a regionally accredited institution.

Certificate completion

A graduate student will have five years after initial enrollment in the first graduate-level course to complete the certificate program under the requirements in effect at the time of enrollment. If program requirements change, the student can elect to complete the revised curriculum or complete under the original curriculum. If the student does not complete the certificate degree program within the five-year period, the requirements in effect at the time of the next enrollment will be used to determine the student’s certificate requirements. Upper Iowa University reserves the right to make changes in its academic regulations and requirements when, in its judgment, the best interests of the institution are served.
