Miami University offers several Certificates. A graduate Certificate is like a minor. It consists of less than 21 credit hours and is not a degree. For some certificates you must be a degree seeking student, while for others you can be a non-degree seeking student (CGS). Contact the department/program sponsoring the certificate for details on admission into the certificate. If you pursue a certificate as a non-degree seeking student, you are not eligible for financial aid.
