        • 2. Policies, Rules, Terms

          Students cannot take a certificate in his/her existing area of study/major.

          All certificates are 18 credits (36 ECTS), at least half of which students must take outside their required study program courses, during their Bachelor's degree program (i.e., before graduating).

          Students must maintain a grade level of C- or better for courses to count towards the specific certificate program.

          No transfer credits can count towards a certificate program.

          Certificates can be awarded by UNYP (separate from the diploma) upon completion of all program requirements. Students in the American SUNY Bachelor's degree program would be required to take 137 credits (128 credits for the degree requirements and 9 credits beyond). Students in the European Bachelor's degree program would be required to take 198 ECTS (180 ECTS for the degree requirements and 18 ECTS beyond).

          Students in the American SUNY Bachelor's program who are interested in a certificate program are encouraged to apply no later than the second year of their studies. Students in the European Bachelor's degree program who are interested in a certificate program are strongly advised to apply in their first year of their studies.

          Standard credit tuition cost applies without any additional cost. Students in the 3-year (European) Bachelor's degree program taking SUNY/ESC courses within the chosen certificate program will complete these courses in an independent study format.
