Undergraduate - Certificate Programs
In order to provide CAPS students opportunities to take electives that will allow them to focus on specific career-oriented areas, the College of Adult and Professional Studies offers Certificates in several broad career areas. For a current listing of courses and information, please see http://www.indwes.edu/Academics/CAPS/School-of-Liberal-Arts/.
Certificates are available to students in the baccalaureate and associate programs, and to students who are registered as unclassified students. The Parish Nursing Certificate has specific admissions requirements as follows:
To be awarded the Certificate, a student will need to take 15 credit hours from the selected courses in the specified certificate area. Degree-seeking students must earn at least nine of the 15 credit hours at IWU. (Six of the credits may be earned through transfer of courses from an accredited institution, through credit by examination, or through an IWU Assessed Learning Portfolio.) Unclassified students and Parish Nursing students must complete all 15 credits through IWU to be eligible for a certificate. A grade of "C" or better must be earned in each course. The Certificate area will be noted on the transcript.
