Certificates are intended to recognize student achievement in particular areas 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 by students during the completion of their regular degree program. The embedded certificate defines a specific area of focus for the student during the course of their 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.

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
