Graduate Certificate Programs

The Graduate Certificate Programs are designed to appeal to working professionals. These programs are identified each year along with course selections from existing graduate courses that provide working professionals with the knowledge they need to understand and contribute to an emerging area. Once admitted to a Certificate Program, the student must take four of the designated courses; at least three must be from Missouri S&T.

In order to receive a Graduate Certificate, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Students admitted to the Certificate Program will have non-degree graduate status but will earn graduate credit for the courses they complete. If the four-course sequence is completed with a grade of B or better in each of the courses taken, upon application, the student will be admitted to the MS degree program sponsoring the Graduate Certificate. The Certificate courses taken by students admitted to the MS program will apply towards their master’s degrees. Students who do not have all of the prerequisite courses necessary to take the courses in the Certificate Program will be allowed to take "bridge" courses at either the graduate or undergraduate level to prepare for the formal Certificate courses.

Once admitted to a Certificate Program, a student will be given three years to complete the program so long as he/she maintains at least a B average in the courses taken. Students meeting the Certificate requirements to be admitted into the MS program are not required to take the GRE or GMAT. Students not meeting the Certificate requirements may still apply to the MS degree program, but normal admission requirements (including minimum GRE for the MS program only) must be met.
