Some Certificates are not available to students registered in certain degree programs.
Please refer to the published table restrictions listing and guidelines.
For example, the Certificate in Accounting - Finance is not open to students in the Business Management Accounting Major degree Program (neither full-time nor part-time students may pursue this certificate).
'Undeclared' students may not register in a certificate that could become restricted to them when they select their program major. For example, Business Management students in the first year 'Undeclared' Plan may not register in the Accounting - Finance Certificate until they have declared themselves to be in a Plan that does not restrict registration in this certificate (e.g., they have selected the Human Resources degree Plan). Once they have selected a degree Plan, they may register in any certificate that is not restricted for that Plan. Students are encouraged to declare their Program Plan as early as possible to facilitate their registration in a certificate.
Undeclared students may enrol in any CNED courses they like, but are cautioned that 'Certificate Only' courses will not apply to their intended degree Program and Plan. Also, some degree-level courses in a certificate might not apply to their intended degree Program and Plan.
If, subsequent to registering in the certificate but prior to graduation with the certificate, students change their declared Plan in a degree Program to a Plan which restricts registration in the certificate, their graduation from the degree will take precedence over the awarding of the certificate.
