Student Eligibility and Administration of the Program
Eligibility criteria for admission to the certificate program include a B.A. degree from an accredited institution with a 3.0 or higher GPA.
Students admitted to the certificate program may be enrolled either as a regular graduate student or admitted to the Graduate School as a certificate-seeking student.
Students must maintain grade-point averages of 3.0 or better in all courses taken to satisfy requirements of the Indigenous Studies Certificate. At the conclusion of the program, the student should ask the Indigenous Studies program to verify that the requirements for the certificate have been met.
The total credit hours earned from a certificate and transferred into a graduate degree program cannot exceed six hours. Eight hours can be permitted if the student holds a baccalaureate degree from KU.
Student records will be handled by the department's graduate academic advisor.
Awarding of certificates will be handled consistent with guidelines and timing of degree awards of the Graduate School.
