Certificate programs will appear on each student’s record as a separate curriculum record, regardless if the certificate is considered stand-alone, degree-dependent, or major-dependent.
Students may pursue no more than five concurrent curriculum records of any kind.
Current students should meet with an advisor to add a certificate program to their record. This process can start with the student’s primary advisor or an advisor for the program being added. Prospective students should contact the Office of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org
for information on being admitted to a certificate program.
Students will need to submit a degree application in Howdy for certificates to be awarded. This should be done during the term in which the student will complete certificate requirements.
The Office of the Registrar will award certificates no more frequently than the last calendar day of each month. Major-dependent certificates will be awarded once the degree is conferred. Stand-alone and degree-dependent certificates can be awarded at the end of the month in which all requirements are met.
All University certificates will be awarded using a consistent credential with a format similar to, but distinct from the diploma of Texas A&M University.
All University certificates will be issued by the Office of the Registrar and will contain the signatures of the Chair of the Board of Regents, Chancellor, and the University President similar to the diploma.
University certificates will either be mailed directly to the student or issued to the college for formal presentation.
