An undergraduate certificate reflects the efforts of SIS to expand curriculum while providing students with the opportunity to gain further specialization in an area of interest.

Registration for the certificate is through your academic advisor during your first year as a graduate student and during your freshman and sophomore year as an undergraduate. The certificate is open, by application, to all students, upon registration and the certificate if completed is awarded upon graduation.
