A limited number of graduate certificate programs are available by distance education. Please review Transcripted Graduate Certificate Programs.

The delivery platform differs among these programs. Most are available 100% online, some are web-supported with interactive video and others require periodic campus visits. The delivery platform in most programs changes depending on the course/program content, needs of the students and their geographic locations. Students should carefully consider distance education and address any specific questions to the department offering the program of interest.

Only a student who is admitted to Texas A&M University may enroll in these distance education programs and the associated courses. A student wishing to enroll in any of the distance education programs must be admitted as a degree-seeking graduate student or as a post-baccalaureate non-degree seeking student. Please see http://admissions.tamu.edu for graduate admissions information.

A student may take up to 12 hours in non-degree-seeking post-baccalaureate status and apply these hours to a master’s program with the approval of the student’s advisory committee, the head of the department (or Chair of the Intercollegiate Faculty, if appropriate), and the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies if all admission requirements to the selected master’s program are fulfilled. Courses offered for extension credit may not be used on the student’s degree plan. Post-baccalaureate non-degree status does not establish eligibility for admission to degree-seeking status.

Texas A&M University provides students pursuing a graduate degree by distance a wide variety of student support services, including access to library resources, advising, technology support and course materials acquisition through the online bookstore. A complete listing of services, degree program descriptions, appropriate points of contact within each program, and costs are available through the distance education website at http://distance.tamu.edu. Additional distance education programs are in development. Interested students should check the website periodically for updates. Students should contact the department offering the program for any questions.

Other certificate programs may exist in the various colleges or schools. Inquiries should be addressed to these colleges. For more information on graduate certificate programs, please visit the Office of the Registrar website.
