Additional Information

Please note: candidacy and application fees are not transferable or refundable.

Students in certificate programs may repeat once for credit only those courses in which they receive a grade of C-, D, F, NP, or U. A course in which a grade of C-, D or F has been earned may not be repeated for credit on a Passed/Not Passed basis. No more than a single instance of earned credit for any course will count toward minimum unit requirements for completing a certificate program, or for assessing continuing progress with respect to financial aid, or the status of international students on F1 visas.

All certificate programs at UCLA Extension require professional-level English language proficiency in listening and note-taking, reading comprehension and vocabulary, written expression, and oral presentation. If you would like to refine your English language proficiency prior to beginning one of our programs, we offer English as a Second Language programs and an array of classes in Communication and Learning Skills.

UCLA Extension may change the content and course requirements of a certificate program at any time. To prevent being impacted by possible changes in the course requirements, students are encouraged strongly to enroll in the certificate of their choice as early as possible following their selection of a program. Only those whose paid certificate application fees have been accepted are assured of completion of a certificate under its current requirements. Courses within the curriculum are expected to be completed by the end of normal candidacy which is cited above. Candidacies can be renewed under certain circumstances. Students with older records may be required to repeat material to ensure its relevance.

Students who complete their curriculum with an earned GPA of 3.5 or higher will have the notation "earned with distinction" posted to their transcript and printed on their certificates. For other information about candidacies and the service environment, see about certificate candidacy.

UCLA is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). This program was developed and is administered in accordance with regulations of the Academic Senate of the University of California.

For the prospective international student seeking an F1 visa to enter the U.S., either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), or the International English Language Testing System ’s (IELTS) exam will be required if English is not his or her first language. The minimum requirements can vary from program to program. See above for the minimum score required for admission to study in this program. Students with a score of 79 to 100 on TOEFL (or 6.5 to 7 on IELTS) will be required upon arrival to take a supplementary exam (the English as a Second Language Placement Exam , or ESLPE) administered at UCLA for assignment in one of two levels of supplementary English language courses. Students who score higher than 100 on the TOEFL, (or higher than 7 on IELTS), or who are native English speakers, are exempt from taking the ESLPE and from supplementary English language instruction.

International students on F1 visas are required by U.S. law to enroll full-time (12 units per quarter) in courses that lead to the award of their certificate. To both meet this requirement and to progress in a structured curriculum, international students may be required to supplement their term study list with elective courses, and ultimately to graduate with more than the minimum units or courses otherwise required. We recommend you contact the advisor listed above if you have any questions about the duration of study.
