Changes for School of MCB Certificate Programs

The School of MCB offers three Certificate Programs for students who are interested in focusing their advanced MCB coursework.  Certificates are available in Cell and Developmental Biology, Microbiology and Neuroscience.

To declare a certificate, students must meet with an MCB advisor and complete the online declaration form, available on the respective websites, by the 10th day of their final semester.  To earn the certificate, students need to complete and pass all required courses, complete the appropriate certification form and turn in to the MCB Advising Office by the posted deadline.  Once requirements have been verified, students will be contacted with options for receiving the printed certificate.
