Click the "Contact Us" link at the top of this page to contact a faculty member who can discuss your CAT program completion. Our office can direct you to the appropriate completion plan to help you finish your program.

Recommended Completion Sequence

To declare your program of study, certificate, or degree, please use the program codes in WebAdvisor that follow the title of the degree/certificate listed in the list below. Three of the smaller certificates "stack" into a larger 34 unit certificate/degree. Please review the Moving through CAT flyer for additional information.

Program Planning

To assist with your program planning use the program planner documents. If you are completing one of these short-term programs in addition to another larger, degree or certificate you may enroll in the courses and apply for the certificate without changing your primary course of study. Just apply for the certificate in the term you plan to complete the program. It is strongly recommended that students meet with a program faculty member to finalize program plans. Click the "Contact Us" link at the top of this page to contact a faculty member for assistance.
