Post-MS (non-degree)

After acceptance to a post-master’s (non-degree) option, students complete a “gap analysis” with the appropriate specialty director to determine what courses will comprise their plan of study.  For students enrolled in advanced practice areas of post-master’s study, the goal is to identify courses needed to help those students become eligible to sit for national board certification in the respective specialty.  When that plan of study is completed, the students’ transcripts reflect the courses taken and the grades earned.  Other than the courses taken and grades earned, there will be no additional notations on the transcript and a diploma will not be granted.  The specialty director will complete documentation of courses competed as needed for certifying agencies.
