Certificates are intended to recognize a student's achievement in a particular area of focus not readily apparent on a student's degree or transcript.

An embedded credit certificate implies that the requirements of the certificate can be met during the completion of a student's degree program. There are no additional fees assessed for courses taken towards an embedded certificate other than those that would normally apply to those courses. Once the certificate requirements have been met, students will receive their embedded certificate upon graduation from their degree program.

Note: no more than half of the course requirements for one certificate may overlap with the requirements of another certificate. Normally, a student may receive no more than two embedded certificates in one degree program.
