Although any course taken at UW-Platteville will be noted on a student's transcript, certificates offered through the School of Business will not be a transcripted credential nor will the certificate be a declared sub-program in a student’s academic plan (i.e. PASS). The business-related certificates are generally intended for those pursuing a degree outside of the School of Business or seeking professional development without the intention of earning a degree. Courses completed in fulfillment of the certificate may be redirected toward progress in a business-related degree but a student may not earn both a business-related degree (major or minor) and a business-related certificate.
A "certificate of completion" will be printed within the School of Business upon completion of the required courses. It is the student's responsibility to request issuance of the certificate within one year of completing all of the courses.
- Students pursuing any business-related certificate must complete at least 9 credits that are unique to the certificate and unduplicated with required courses in any other major, minor, emphasis, or concentration.
- Substitutions may be allowed, in consultation with the Director of the School of Business, in the event that a certificate course is duplicated with another major, minor, emphasis, or concentration.
- Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses required for the certificate.
- All courses must be taken under the direction of UW-Platteville faculty. Transferred courses are not allowed.
