**The IUPUI Faculty Senate approved the following Certificate Program Criteria (May 2001):
“Students who are seeking one of the certificate programs offered by the School of Engineering and Technology must qualify for admission under the published criteria for one of the academic units at IUPUI and must complete at least one-half of the academic requirements for that certificate after admission to that certificate program. Although there are several admission and/or enrollment options open to certificate students, it is expected that all of this remaining course work will be in courses taught by one or more of the IUPUI academic units. Any courses, e.g., web-based courses or courses via the Internet, delivered by an IUPUI School are considered to be residence courses for this purpose.”
