Graduate Certificate

The STPP certificate requires 15 credit hours of coursework, including three core courses and two electives of the student's choice. These courses can be taken in any order.
The STPP experience involves more than just the classroom.
This grant is designed to provide supplemental support for students to attend STPP-related conferences and professional development events that may otherwise be cost-prohibitive.
Any student with a bachelor's degree who has been admitted to one of the University's science (natural or social), engineering, or professional graduate degree programs or who is currently enrolled in one of these graduate programs is eligible to submit an application to the STPP Graduate Certificate Program.
