Applicants must meet one of the 3 following requirements:

• Be a graduate of an accredited four-year college or university, and have a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4-point scale in their last 60 credit hours of undergraduate study.

• Have a Master’s degree.

• Be a degree student in good standing in a NC State University graduate program.

We recommend that students in a NC State University graduate program may apply after completing two of the courses required for the graduate certificate program with at least B grades. The graduate certificate program Director will manage the admissions process in consultation with the MEAS Director of Graduate Programs.


Application Processes:

• An application for acceptance into a certificate program is required for all new applicants. The applicant must apply via the Graduate School application.

• Those applicants who are currently enrolled in an NC State graduate program need only provide the Graduate student Certificate Plan Data entry form.
