Certificate Registration

To graduate from a certificate program, you must register in the program and successfully complete the certificate requirements from the year in which you registered for the program.

You must register for a certificate program before completing 50 percent of the certificate requirements. Failure to register by this time could adversely affect your graduation and your GPA calculation by delaying your graduation by at least one term or possibly requiring that you complete additional courses.

Certificate Requirements

Toronto Metropolitan University’s policies on enrolment, grading, and graduation define the minimum level of acceptable academic performance required to graduate. These policies apply to all certificate programs. Make sure you read and understand the requirements for your desired certificate before registering.

You may be registered in only one certificate program at any one time. Each application, either for certificate registration or for transfer into a different certificate program, requires the submission of a new request online through MyServiceHub in advance of the published application deadline.

Applications received after the published deadlines will be applied to the term directly following. Your registration in the certificate will not take effect until that term. For example, if you enrol in certificate courses in the Fall term, but do not submit your certificate registration request until after the Fall deadline, your registration in the certificate program will take effect in the Winter term. This means any applicable certificate courses you successfully completed in the Fall term will not be included in your cumulative grade point average (CGPA). However, they will count as credit towards your certificate graduation requirements (up to a maximum of 50 percent).
