Prir t submitting the electrnic ntificatin t The University f Nrth Carlina General Administratin (hereinafter referred t as GA ), the Graduate Dean will ntify the SACS Accreditatin Liaisn Officer and the Office f the Prvst fr final review and apprval. After such apprvals, the Graduate Schl will frward, submit, r ntify apprved certificate prgrams t GA by psting the certificate t be included in the WSSU inventry f prgrams. The Graduate Schl will award certificates upn cmpletin t include the fllwing signatures: the dean f the respective schl/cllege; the dean f the Graduate Schl; the Prvst; and the Chancellr. Criteria fr Apprval f Certificate Prgrams Criteria fr apprval f new graduate certificate prgrams must include the fllwing: 1.

2 externally r internally derived data; 4. An apprpriate number f credit hurs must cmprise the certificate prgram. The number f graduate credits may nt be less than 9 semester hurs nr mre than ne-half f the semester hurs necessary fr a related graduate degree frm the Graduate Schl. Plicies Gverning Certificate Admissin Criteria and Subsequent Admissin t Graduate Degree Prgrams The certificate admissins criteria and plicies gverning the relatin f pst-baccalaureate certificates t graduate degree prgrams include the fllwing: 1. An earned baccalaureate degree r its equivalent frm an accredited cllege r university is required fr admissin t a pst-baccalaureate certificate prgram; 2. Each certificate prgram sets the minimum admissins requirements fr the certificate (e.g. grade pint average, standardized test scres, wrk experience, etc.). All certificate candidates must be infrmed at the time f their acceptance that admissin t and cmpletin f a certificate prgram des nt supersede the admissin requirements t a degree prgram shuld they subsequently apply t a graduate degree prgram; 3. Each graduate prgram must decide which, if any, certificate curses can be cunted tward the graduate degree if a certificate student is admitted int a graduate degree prgram. There may be limitatins n the hurs taken as a nndegree student that can be cunted tward a particular graduate degree, as determined by the graduate degree-granting department; 4. Graduate students currently enrlled in a graduate degree prgram, may simultaneusly pursue a graduate certificate if apprved by bth their graduate advisry cmmittee, (r graduate prgram directr if n cmmittee has been frmed), and the Graduate Schl. N ther applicatin is necessary; 5.

The Dean f the Graduate Schl, upn request by the prgram crdinatr, may grant exceptins t this plicy. Certificate-seeking graduate students wh are nt currently enrlled in a master's prgram will be admitted int a separate classificatin within the Graduate Schl, as "Certificate" students, as defined by the Graduate Schl. This separate classificatin will permit keeping f University-wide statistical and enrllment data fr certificate prgrams, and will allw inclusin f such effrts in the quarterly reprts, annual reprts and academic planning. The Graduate Schl will cntact the Registrar t nte successful cmpletin f a
3 certificate prgram n the student's transcript upn cmpletin and the Graduate Schl will award a certificate. 6.
