To obtain the certificate, a student must complete all four of the required courses with an average grade of 3.0 (B) or higher, for a total of 12 credits.
Students in the certificate program must comply with all retention standards of the Graduate School at the University of Memphis. All students are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. Should the student’s cumulative GPA fall below that mark, a period of one semester will be allowed to correct the deficiency. Students failing to improve their GPA to an acceptable level in that time will be dismissed from the program.
