Apply for a Graduate Certificate
Admission to our graduate certificate programs is processed by the individual schools within which the programs are offered. To begin the application process, you’ll need to complete the online Purdue University Graduate School application. As you’re filling out the application, you’ll see a section for Proposed Graduate Major. Select the certificate program you’re interested in from the list. Online certificate options include:
- Applied Heat Transfer
- Applied Statistics
- Digital Signal Processing
- Noise Control
Once you’ve made your selection, the application will default to the questions and information necessary to complete the application.
Admission to any of our graduate certificate programs requires a bachelor’s degree in an appropriate field—such as engineering, science, mathematics, technology—with a GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. When you apply to a graduate certificate program, you’ll need to submit evidence of a bachelor’s degree. This may be an official transcript, a copy of the diploma, or a letter from the college or university verifying the degree.
Please note that acceptance into a graduate certificate program does not assure admission to the Graduate School of Purdue University to pursue an advanced degree.
