Graduate Admissions Support Center

Can applicants pursue a Master of Science program and a certificate program at the same time?

Last Updated: May 12, 2016 09:31AM EDT
For applicants who are eventually interested in completing a Master of Science program, they should apply to their Master of Science program of interest first. If officially accepted, after they enroll in the Master of Science program, they may apply to pursue a certificate program. Note that the admissions process and standards of acceptance are the same for Master of Science programs and certificate programs. If officially accepted to a certificate program, then they may pursue their Master of Science program and certificate program concurrently.
