2. Students taking this Advanced Certificate concurrently with another Warner program need to make sure that there are at least 3 credits of coursework or practicum/internship that are unique to this program.

3. As per University of Rochester policy, no more than one third of the credits required for this advanced certificate can be transferred from another institution.

Other Requirements:

In addition to the coursework indicated above, in order to graduate and to receive the certification(s)/licensure (if any) you are seeking this program has additional requirements. Please note that in some cases, while our program will provide you with all the academic experiences required for the certification you seek, there may be some additional requirements that you will have to complete independently and outside of our program in order to be granted that certification/licensure (ex: completing a certain number of years of mentored experiences). When that is the case, we have listed these requirements but also indicated that they are not a graduation requirement.
