Advanced Graduate Certificate Program Requirements
The Advanced Graduate Certificate (AGC) is an 18-credit program that can be taken after completing a bachelor's, master's, or other advanced degree. It is a good option for someone who may not want to complete the full 30-credit master's degree, but would like to develop a solid background and skills in the higher education and student affairs field.
