Graduate/professional certificates are available to all degree-seeking graduate and professional students (GRAD, LAW, MED, PHARM, VMED careers) and may be used by doctoral students in meeting their breadth requirement (see policy on Breadth Requirement in Doctoral Training here: https://policy.wisc.edu/library/UW-1200) . Graduate/professional certificate programs coordinate teaching and research among scholars active in interrelated disciplines. Consult the certificate program regarding recognition of program completion. Certificate programs monitor their own course and satisfactory progress requirements.
Before enrolling in courses for a certificate, students must declare their intent to pursue the certificate credential through the Add/Change/Discontinue application process in the MyGradPortal.
