Course Substitution Policy

Graduate certificate courses, may be substituted with an approved elective. To substitute an approved elective for a required course, a student must have successfully completed equivalent academic coursework at the undergraduate/graduate level in the five years prior to matriculation (“B” or better) and provide official transcripts (with English translations, if applicable). All graduate certificate students must complete a minimum of 9 credits in the Sawyer Business School.


Degree Progression Requirements

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 that 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.
