Admission requirements for the MAOL certificate are the same as those for the degree. A certificate student in good academic standing may convert to degree status by updating an abbreviated application form.
Any coursework taken for a certificate can be applied toward an MAOL degree within the seven-year completion policy of the program, unless otherwise stipulated. MAOL graduates may complete an additional certificate by adding coursework to their program.
