Applicants for M.S. degree or Graduate Certificate
Ready to apply to the M.S. or graduate certificate in medical ethics? To apply as a matriculated or graduate certificate student, applicants must submit:
If you are interested in enrolling in courses as a non-matriculating student, please contact Ira Bedzow, Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
If you wish to pursue the master’s degree, you must enroll as a matriculated student. A grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 from the undergraduate institution from which the applicant received his/her degree is generally required for those beginning studies as matriculated students (those pursuing a degree). However, the GPA (both undergraduate and graduate) is one of several factors that are considered. Other factors include the applicant’s Statement of Academic Purpose, test scores, recommendations, work experience, community involvement, and school extracurricular activities.
Certificate-only students and students who are interested in auditing or enrolling in classes may enroll as non-matriculated students. Students taking 9 credits or less (non-degree) are considered non-matriculating students. All credits taken will be applied to the degree program chosen. Non-matriculating students are not eligible for financial aid (federal loans). If a student becomes a matriculated student, all credits taken will be applied to the degree program chosen.
Conditional Admissions Students
Applicants whose undergraduate GPA is under 3.0, may, at the discretion of the Admissions Review Committee, be accepted as conditional admissions students. Upon completion of a minimum of 6 and maximum of 9 credits with a grade point average of 3.0 (grades of B) or higher, the status of conditional admissions students will be reviewed and the committee may remove the conditional status and hold on the student’s continued registration. Financial aid is available per federal guidelines. If the student does not meet the 3.0 GPA criterion, he/she will be prohibited from enrolling in any further coursework and will be administratively withdrawn from the school.
Applicants to credit-bearing certificate programs only are accepted as non-matriculated students, and remain in this status for the duration of the program, even if the total number of credits exceeds nine. The admissions requirements for the graduate certificates are the same as the M.S.
