Kettering University has designed a set of graduate certificate programs for students that want to update their skill set in a new area of study. For students who do not have a graduate degree in hand, a graduate certificate can be the beginning of work toward a master‘s degree. For students who already hold a masters degree, a certificate program can provide graduate level education in an additional area of concentration.

All graduate certificates require a minimum of three graduate level courses. No more than two five hundred (500) level courses may be included in the certificate. The three courses must apply to a particular graduate degree and all count for credit in that degree.

Students must meet admission requirements for a graduate program to be accepted to the graduate certificate.
