Current Degree-Seeking UIU Students

Students may seek a certificate while working on their degree program. Your academic advisor can assist in coordinating certificate courses as part of your degree program. No additional application or paperwork is necessary to begin working on your certificate. Upon successful completion of all required courses in the certificate, a Certificate Claim Form must be completed. There is a certificate claim fee of $30.

Certificate completion will not be posted on the transcript.

Financial aid is only available to students who are degree-seeking with UIU and have gone through the standard application and award process. Financial aid is not available to non-degree seeking students pursuing certificates. Certificate courses must also apply to degree requirements to be eligible towards financial aid hours.

As with other course preparation, prerequisite courses represent foundational knowledge the student needs to be most successful. Your academic advisor can assist in the selection of the most appropriate sequence of courses to match your academic preparation.
