All BA students are eligible to pursue a certificate. To view a list of available certificates, visit the Special Study Opportunities--Certificates and Diplomas section of the current Undergraduate Calendar.
Certificates are awarded only after all required courses have been completed so you do not need to register for a certificate in advance. However, some certificates do require 120 hours of approved hours prior to the completion of capstone courses.
- As certificates are awarded by the Office of Open Learning, they do not appear on your undergraduate transcript or Diploma.
- There is no average requirement for certificates.
- Upon completing your certificate, you must complete the Certificate Application Request Form on the Open Learning website https://opened.uoguelph.ca/student-resources/Forms
Any questions about certificates should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org, ext. 56050.
Please note that the Leadership Certificate is exempt from double-counting rules.
