Students who want to expand their understanding of co-occurring disorders without committing to a master's degree can apply for the Certificate of Graduate Studies (CGS) in Co-Occurring Disorders. With a focus on mental health and substance use, current and aspiring professionals prepare to work with the complexities of co-occurring disorders. The 6 courses (18 graduate credits) are core to the Masters degree in Co-Occurring Disorders. The certificate meets state approval for the course requirements of a Certified Co-occurring Disorder Professional. Courses appear with an asterisk (*) in the Course Requirements section.
- A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.00 on a 4.00 scale. Grades below a B are not considered of graduate quality and are of limited application to degree work.
- A minimum grade of B- in CEP 531 or 532. Students who receive a grade of B- or lower in either of these courses must consult with their advisor before registering for any subsequent course in the plan of study.
- Failure to meet any one of the above requirements is sufficient cause for dismissal from the program.
