Texas State Certificate Program Application of Completion
Students in the certificate programs must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 in order to receive a certificate of completion for the program. See the table above for the specific GPA and course grade requirements per certificate program. A final course grade of "C" or higher is required for any graduate course that may be applied towards a graduate certificate at Texas State. All certificate course work must be completed within four years of initial enrollment.
Upon completion of certificate course requirements, students must apply online through the Self-Service Banner system using the “Apply for Graduation” link. Deadlines and instructions to apply after the deadline can be found on the graduation website under “Applying for Graduation” at http://www.gradcollege.txstate.edu/Current_Students/Graduation.html . The Graduate College will confirm with the graduate advisor that the requirements have been met. The Graduate College will then contact the Registrar’s Office to request the awarding of the certificate. Texas State Certificates are printed by the Registrar’s Office at the end of each term after candidates have been cleared. Certificates are distributed to recipients through the appropriate college dean and are not presented at the graduation ceremony.
Certificate and degree programs are approved in accordance with guidelines provided by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Texas State University System.
