Because we review applications on a continual basis, you can start earning the certificate when it works best for you, whether that’s spring, fall or summer.
Students in a UNL graduate business degree program wishing to pursue the certificate will not be subject to additional screening. Students seeking just a certificate will be reviewed by a faculty committee based on:
- Letter of interest
- Professional resume
- Undergraduate GPA
- Undergraduate transcripts
- Three references
We will review candidates holistically, but we will recommend that students have completed a bachelor’s degree with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. We also recommend that entering students have three or more years of professional work experience. Students with less than a 3.0 GPA, but who have significant work experience (5+ years of professional experience) will be considered for the certificate program.
Upload Supporting Documents
All Supporting Documents including unofficial transcripts and test scores are uploaded directly via the graduate application.
You are required to submit an unofficial transcript from each post-secondary institution you have attended during the application review process.
Submit Official Transcripts
If you are admitted, you will be required to submit an official transcript sent directly from each institution you have attended to
The Office of Graduate Studies. We recommend that you complete this task before your admitted term begins. A hold will be placed
on your account if they do not receive your official transcripts by October 1 for the fall term, February 1 for the spring term and July 1
for the summer term. Students will have until that day to submit official transcripts or your admission will be rescinded.
Transcripts can be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to
University of Nebraska–Lincoln
1100 Seaton Hall
Lincoln, NE 68588-0619
