# Graduate Certificate in Applied Mathematics

The Graduate Certificate in Applied Mathematics is designed to enhance training in various aspects of applied mathematics. It is intended for students who are currently pursuing a graduate degree in a discipline outside of the Mathematics Department, or for students who wish to pursue the certificate as a stand-alone program.

## Admission to Graduate Studies

An applicant seeking to pursue graduate study in the College may be admitted as either a degree-seeking or non-degree seeking student. Policies and procedures of Graduate Studies govern the process of Graduate admission. These may be found in the Graduate Studies section of the online catalog.

Please consult the Departments & Programs section of the online catalog for information regarding program-specific admissions criteria and requirements. Special admissions requirements pertain to Interdisciplinary Studies degrees, which may be found in the Graduate Studies section of the online catalog.

## Admission to the Graduate Certificate in Applied Mathematics

- Current enrollment in a KU graduate program outside the Department of Mathematics, or as a non-degree-seeking student
- Completion of two MATH graduate courses from those listed in the Certificate Requirements, with a minimum 3.0 GPA. These courses can then count towards the 12 credits required for the certificate.
