Four Credit Graduate Course  Certificate Withdrawal/No Refund  Policy

Registration for the Graduate Certificate program is two courses per semester.  By completing the registration process for two intense courses per semester, you agree to be a cohort participant and will meet the FSU contract and commitment to complete the program.  Contracts between NCTA and FSU are signed prior to program commencement, thereby making it necessary to implement a no refund policy for any four graduate credit courses once registration has been completed.
