Candidates for the Graduate Certificate in Gerontology should have a bachelors degree. You are not required to completed the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), Law School Admission Test (LSAT), or any other graduate school entrance examination for admission; however, students should satisfy all other requirements for admission to the corresponding graduate degree from which the certificate curriculum is drawn. Non-degree students who demonstrate potential and motivation for doing graduate work may be admitted provisionally. Course work completed on a non-degree basis that satisfies the course requirements of a graduate program within the University may be applied as advanced standing toward that degree, with the exception of the JD program offered through the School of Law.
