Certificates - Undergraduate - FAQ: May we delay students' graduation so that they can complete our certificate program?
A student in my certificate needs x more courses to fulfill the certificate requirements - but they are eligible to graduate before they complete our requirements. May we delay students' graduate so that they may complete the certificate?
No. The certificate should not hinder students’ timely progress to degree. Graduation must not be delayed simply to allow an undergraduate student who has otherwise fulfilled degree/major requirements to complete a certificate. Rather, the student might enroll after graduation as a University Special student (non-degree seeking student) to complete the remaining requirements, if the certificate program has been authorized to serve University Special students in this way.
