Program Admission (Certification)

In addition to university requirements for admission to the Graduate School, all applicants for regular admission to the Certificate Program must meet one of the following criteria:

(1) a minimum undergraduate grade-point average of 2.75 or a minimum 3.0 on the last 60 semester hours of undergraduate or combined undergraduate and graduate course work; or

(2) a score of 400 on the Verbal portion and a score of 400 on the Quantitative portion of the Graduate Record Examination; or

(3) a total of at least 1900 points determined by multiplying the cumulative overall undergraduate grade point average by the Graduate Record Examination General Test score (Verbal plus Quantitative).

In addition, students must take the Graduate Record Examination prior to, or within their first semester, of graduate enrollment.

Applicants who fail to meet the above standards may be admitted on conditional status as recommended by the Gerontology Admission Committee and approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
