A qualified student who wishes to enter Virginia Tech to obtain a graduate certificate, without being enrolled in a degree program, may apply for graduate admission through Graduate Certificate status.
Such applicants should submit concurrently:
The Graduate School requires a GPA of 3.0 for admission to Certificate Status and official transcripts must be submitted. Note that students pursuing a degree and a certificate simultaneously are classified in their degree program. Credits used toward a certificate may be used in meeting degree requirements if they are appropriate for inclusion on the Plan of Study for the degree.
International students in F-1 or J-1 visa status are not eligible to enroll in a certificate program unless they also are enrolled full time in a degree program.
We accept credit cards (MC & Visa) & e-check.
