Individuals seeking admission for purposes of attaining a graduate certificate, but not degree seeking, will be evaluated for admission using the same procedures as outlined for continuing education for credit students, with the written approval of the head of the academic site offering the program. Applicants must submit the requisite application for continuing education (Code: 0102), with fee payment made, and be certified by the approving official as being capable of performing to graduate course standards. Specific admission criteria include the following:
Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited university.
An undergraduate GPA of at least 2.5 is generally sufficient for admission for a graduate certificate program. An undergraduate GPA that is less than 2.5 will require that the applicant provide a GMAT, GRE and/or special documentation including letters of reference, résumé, postbaccalaureate credits, certificates of training, etc., to be admitted by exception for a graduate certificate program.
Individuals currently enrolled in a graduate degree program may also qualify for award of a graduate certificate by making a formal request to the local site director, upon satisfaction of the requisite certificate curriculum.
All courses must be completed with a minimum grade of C. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 will be required for certificate award. Students will be allowed to attempt seven courses to meet the GPA requirement. If the minimum GPA is not met after seven courses, and the student would like to continue, he/she may appeal to the dean.
A possible three semester hours of transfer credit will be allowed and is consistent with current university policy regarding transfer credit. The transfer course must be from a regionally accredited university or an approved military equivalent and must have an earned grade of B or better.
Current or past members of the Defense Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (AT&L) workforce, or contractor employees who have attained a minimum level of professional certification in at least one AT&L career area, may be eligible for as many as six hours of transfer credits to be applied toward a Florida Tech Graduate Certificate. Consult with a faculty advisor or academic unit head for further information about current transfer credit policies.
A second or subsequent graduate certificate program must consist of no less than three courses not previously used to earn a prior graduate certificate at Florida Tech. Up to two courses from any prior earned graduate certificate at Florida Tech may be applied toward the completion requirements for a second or subsequent graduate certificate award, provided the grade(s) earned was a B or better and the prior course(s) satisfies a required or elective requirement in the second or subsequent graduate certificate program.
An elective course may be substituted with the permission of the academic unit head.
