We currently offer 15 additional certificates for students to add to their degrees, or to separately enroll in. From Assisted Animal Therapy to Biomedical Ethics, we strive to give our students the opportunity to further their career goals with the more precise knowledge and skills that interest them.
Up to 12 credits of graduate courses taken while concurrently enrolled in a degree program and a certificate program may be double-counted towards the requirements for both with the approval of the directors of the certificate and degree program as well as the Graduate School. Individual programs may have additional provisions or restrictions related to the double-counting of credits between a certificate and a degree. Please see the specific certificate or degree program description in this catalog for any additional applicable information. Students who have earned certificates previously and are returning to ISU to pursue a degree should contact their program director to discuss the possibility of previous relevant certificate credits being used in their new degree program.
In no case is it permissible for credits appearing on the program of study for one graduate certificate to be counted towards a second graduate certificate.
