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, they will be admitted to the appropriate MS program if they apply.  The certificate course taken by students admitted to the MS program will count towards their master's degree.  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.
