Certificate Application Requirements

Admission to the graduate school requires that applicants have achieved at least a B (3.0) average in attaining their bachelor’s degree.

This is an interdisciplinary program and does not require an extensive background in the biological sciences. However, some basic familiarity with biological concepts is necessary. Therefore, individuals applying to the program who have not majored in biology, chemistry, microbiology or other related field must have the following qualifications:

  • Undergrad course work in Biological sciences totaling a minimum of 3 credit hours
  • Professional experience in the workplace that relates strongly to the subject matter presented by the program, evidenced by a letter of recommendation from your current employer.
