Degree Progression Policy

Candidates who apply within one year of completing their graduate certificate will have applicable courses applied to a Sawyer Business School (SBS) graduate degree program, in the same discipline as the certificate, as long as a grade of "B" or better was earned in the course.

Candidates who apply to a degree program, different from their certificate program’s discipline area or beyond one year, will have coursework evaluated on a case by case basis for relevancy, current degree requirements and current Sawyer Business School waiver and transfer policies.

Substitution Policy

To substitute a graduate certificate in finance course with an approved elective, a student must have successfully completed equivalent academic coursework at the undergraduate/graduate level in the seven years prior to matriculation ("B" or better). Official transcripts (with English translations, if applicable) must be provided. A maximum of 3 credits of coursework can be substituted. All graduate certificate students must complete a minimum of 9 credits in the Sawyer Business School.
