Earn College Credit for the Courses
Students enrolled in a microcredential program who successfully complete the certificate courses with grades of C or higher will receive a graduate certificate of recognition, and courses will be transcribed. Students who wish to apply for admission in the full MBA or MSML program must complete the application process and submit all transcripts from previously enrolled institutions. Additionally, graduate certificate students may request an academic transcript that will indicate completed coursework.
To be eligible to enroll in graduate-level certificate courses at SWU, students must have earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution. Certificate students are required to meet the same rigorous academic standards and outcomes as the degree-seeking students.
