Course Substitution Policy

To substitute a financial technology course with an approved elective, a student must successfully complete equivalent academic coursework at the graduate level in the seven (7) years prior to financial technology matriculation, with a grade of “B” or better, and provide official transcripts (with English translations, if applicable). A maximum of 3 credits of coursework can be substituted.

Degree Progression Policy

All graduate certificate students must complete a minimum of 9 credits in the Sawyer Business School.

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 beyond one year or from a certificate program outside their discipline, will have coursework evaluated on a case by case basis for relevancy, current degree requirements, and current Sawyer Business School waiver and transfer policies.
