Composite Materials Online: Certificate
If the certificate program participant only holds an undergraduate degree, it is recommended that he/she take the certificate program courses for credit and grade (A, B, etc.), so that, if at a later date the participant elects to pursue a graduate engineering degree, these graduate engineering courses would be transferable into that degree program. (At most institutions, including the University of Delaware, a maximum of three courses–9 credits–taken in a non-degree status can be transferred into a graduate degree program.) If the certificate program participant already holds a graduate degree and does not intend to use the courses toward any future degree program, then the participant may elect to take the courses Pass/Fail, still earning graduate credits; but those credits are unlikely to be transferable into a graduate degree program.
