Graduate Certificate Application Process
Entry into the Management Information Systems graduate certificate program begins by completing the Graduate School application. During the application, you must designate your interest in either the on campus or online (distance) program by choosing one of the following:
- Certificate/Graduate - Management Information Systems
- Certificate, Graduate -Management Information Systems, Distance
You may apply to enter the program at the beginning of any semester (Fall, Spring, or Summer).
Note: Due to federal guidelines and regulations, Graduate Certificate programs do not qualify
for financial aid.
Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited university or college. The Graduate School will determine whether non-traditional programs are acceptable; a four year equivalent collegiate educational program is required. Appropriate work experience is desired but not required.
Tuition for graduate programs in the Harbert College of Business may be found here. Tuition for online students is $900 per credit hour regardless of residency. The certificate is a 12 credit hour program.
Note: In addition to tuition, on campus students pay $200 per credit hour in graduate professional fees.
International applicants should submit all required materials at least 90 days before the first day of class of the semester in which the student wishes to begin graduate study. Domestic students should submit all materials at least 45 days before the first class day. However, most academic units make admission decisions several months in advance. Thus, applicants should check with the department to which they seek admission to determine when materials should be submitted. Check the contact information for your department of interest.
