Graduate applicants previously admitted to the university may request to change graduate programs by submitting a new graduate application ( The addition of a graduate certificate/micro-credential to a graduate degree program must be approved by the department chair or program coordinator. Any exceptions to this policy require the approval of the deans of the colleges.
