- DUAL GRADUATE DEGREE / CERTIFICATE PROGRAM APPLICANTS:
Applicants who are applying at the same time for both a regular graduate degree program and also for a Certificate of Graduate Study at UVM should follow regular procedures for applying to the UVM Graduate College; see the Graduate College Application Instructions.
