Please note that this is not a grade enhancement program, and thus students are not allowed to retake courses that were previously completed at another university as part of this certificate program. Students applying to this program should select courses that they have not previously attempted.


Students electing to take BIOL_SCI 317-CN Regional Human Anatomy Lab would need to take a minimum of four other courses to earn the certificate.

Courses in biological anthropology may be applied to the certificate, with the approval of the Assistant Dean of Undergraduate and Professional Studies.

In addition to the program requirements, students have the option to enroll in any of the courses offered at SPS (e.g., calculus, psychology, bioethics). However, elective courses will not count toward the minimum of four courses for the certificate.
