Kettering University has designed a set of graduate certificate programs for students that want to update their skill set in a new area of study. For students who do not have a graduate degree in hand, a graduate certificate can be the beginning of work toward a master’s degree. For students who already hold a master's degree, a certificate program can provide graduate level education in an additional area of concentration.
Students must meet admission requirements for a graduate program to be accepted to the graduate certificate.
Prerequisite requirements must be met for the courses in a certificate program or must be waived by the offering department. If prerequisites are waived for the certificate program and the student decides to pursue a complete graduate degree, there may be prerequisites required for a complete program admission.
Graduate tuition will be paid for graduate certificate programs. Students may take classes online or on-campus as available.
