Graduate Certificates

The Graduate Certificate allows the pursuit of graduate theological study without commitment to a full degree program. Each certificate requires satisfactory completion of four courses (12-16 quarter credits) as outlined for that particular program. Since the certificate is not a degree, the credits may be applied to one of Iliff’s degree programs, if the student is accepted into the degree program. Graduate Certificates also provide degree students an opportunity to study in areas outside of their concentration or to demonstrate advanced competency. Students may also complete a Graduate Certificate through our online learning program.

Graduate Certificate Admission Requirements

Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree from a fully accredited college with a minimum of a 2.75 grade point average. Applicants submit a completed application form, personal statement, and transcripts from all undergraduate or graduate institutions previously attended.
