Graduation Requirements - Certificate Program

  1. A student must be matriculated in a SUNY Canton curriculum for a minimum of 12 semester credit hours of graded course work earning a minimum GPA of 1.75 for all such credit hours taken. Individual programs may have additional graduation requirements.
  2. Successful completion of all required courses.
  3. A minimum GPA of 1.75 unless otherwise specified in the section describing that Certificate in the Academic Catalog.
  4. Payment of all financial obligations to the College.


Successful completion of a Certificate program does not automatically qualify a student for admission to a degree curriculum. In order to be admitted to a degree curriculum, the graduate of the Certificate program must achieve a record that indicates a reasonable probability of success in the new curriculum and be recommended by the faculty.
