Progressing Toward a Degree

Undergraduate Certificates

An undergraduate certificate provides a way to give formal recognition of focused study in a specialized area that is less comprehensive than required for an undergraduate major. The completion of an undergraduate certificate is noted on a student’s transcript, and a certificate is awarded concurrent with or after the baccalaureate degree.

All undergraduate certificates require at least 20 credits, including at least 12 credits taken at Iowa State University. See Index, Undergraduate Certificates.
