The Environmental Monitoring and Sampling certificate program is open to all persons holding a B.S., B.A., M.S., or Ph.D., degree. Student must, of course, satisfy all prerequisites for any courses they take in the program; or they must obtain instructor approval to waive any prerequisites. Once admitted to the program, the student must take a minimum of four courses as designated and approved by the program director and must have an average cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or better to receive the certificate.
Students who complete the four-course requirement for the certificate with a grade of B or better in each course may be admitted directly to the respective M.S. program in Geospatial Sciences in Geography, Geology and Planning if they so choose. This admission does not waive the necessity for students to take required prerequisites for other required courses that are part of the M.S. degree. The certificate credits taken will count toward the requirements for the M.S. degree.
