Graduate Certificates

RISAT offers several graduate certificates in order to better serve the industry needs for experts without having to go through all the strict academic requirements of a master's degree.

A student must pass 30 credit hours of graduate course work with a grade of B or better. Graduate courses are all courses numbered above 500. In addition, specific requirements of the Department issuing the Certificate must be satisfied. All students applying for admission in any of the Certificate Degrees must have a Bachelor of Science degree, provide official transcripts of their undergraduate work, and pass the RISAT entrance exam. Applying does not guarantee admission. All course work is done in English, but no English test for admission is required.
