Waiver/Transfer Policy

Graduate certificate courses, if waived, will need to be substituted with an approved elective. To substitute an approved elective for a required course, a student must have successfully completed equivalent academic coursework at the undergraduate/graduate level in the five years prior to matriculation ("B" or better) and provide official transcripts (with English translations, if applicable).

Candidates who apply within one year of completing their graduate certificate will have applicable courses applied to a Sawyer Business School (SBS) graduate degree program in the same discipline as the certificate as long as a grade of "B" or better was earned in that course.

Candidates who apply beyond one year from a certificate program or from a certificate program outside their discipline will have coursework evaluated on a case by case basis for relevancy, current degree requirements and current Sawyer Business School waiver and transfer policies.

Transfer credits from the graduate certificate must have an earned grade of "B" or better and have been taken within five years prior to entering a SBS graduate degree program. However, at the discretion the program director, some courses may not be transferred if the subject material has changed significantly since completion.
