What are the program admission/retention requirements?
The Certificate of Graduate Study in Sustainable Enterprise can be earned as a stand-alone certificate for students already holding a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university but not matriculated in any other UVM graduate program. Students must apply to the CGS-SE before any courses are taken as they will need 15 graded credits as a graduate student in the program to obtain the CGS. The CGS-SE can also be earned in conjunction with a current graduate degree program. Some or all of the courses for the certificate may be used to fulfill requirements or electives for the graduate degree program, subject to approval by the program. Students already enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program at UVM will need to apply no later than prior to completion of the final 6 credits in the certificate program. All credits must be completed at UVM within a five-year period. A minimum GPA of 3.00 must be achieved in the certificate program.

Can the course be taken from anywhere, including outside the US?
Yes. Our certificate is 100% online.
I am from California, therefore I am on Pacific Coast Time (UTC). How will I be able to tune into online lectures?
The CGS-SE is being run as an asynchronous learning opportunity meaning the course content will be disseminated online to facilitate information sharing outside the constraints of time and place among the cohort of students. This method of teaching design makes it accessible to students, international audiences, and mid-career professionals.
