Certificate Completion

For certificate completion, students must submit an application to the Graduate School using their PAWS account, and pay any required completion application fees.

For qualifying students, the certificate program director will verify for the Graduate School the course number and title, grade and semester of enrolment for all courses that meet certificate program requirements. Certificate completion will be posted on a student’s official transcript in line with UWM’s official conferral dates, and an official paper certificate will be sent to the student from the Graduate School.

Graduate certificates are awarded to students who:

  • Meet the certificate requirements within the allotted time limit
