Effective Fall 2019 the Hugo Wall School revised the course requirements for our certificate
programs. The requirements now include two courses that are already required for the
MPA and two additional courses. This change was made to simplify the structure of
the certificates and ensure that the necessary courses are offered in a timely manner
in both face-to-face and online formats.
As students, here is what this means for you:
If you were admitted to a certificate program for the Fall 2019 semester, you automatically
fall under these new certificate rules. Moving forward, every student admitted to
the program will follow these requirements.
If you were admitted to the program for Summer 2019 or earlier, you can still earn
your certificates under the old certificate requirements. You do not need to do anything
different. Should you decide to earn your certificates under the new requirements
you will need to contact your academic advisor to request that your catalog term be
moved to Fall 2019. This change will allow you to follow the new certificate requirements
instead of the old ones. Be aware that if you change your catalog term to Fall 2019,
all certificates you plan to earn must be earned under the new requirements. You cannot
earn one certificate under the new requirements and another under the old requirements.
