Accepted applicants of this online certificate program can begin the program any term.
U.S. applicants (outside of Colorado) for online programs: please be sure to check your eligibility by state of residence.
We recommend that you apply at least 60 days before the start of your first semester, but you can contact the Program Coordinator to confirm upcoming deadlines. Class size is limited. If graduate application deadlines have passed for the upcoming term, you may begin the certificate program before formal graduate school admission by registering for the upcoming course(s).
But to receive the Special Education Graduate Certificate: Teaching Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders you must apply and be accepted to the UNC Graduate School. If you desire to register before you have been admitted by the graduate school, please contact the Academic Program Coordinator (contact information is below).
Once you apply to the UNC Graduate School and your application packet is complete, your application will be reviewed by the graduate school then sent to the faculty/program for an admission decision. A completed application typically takes four to six weeks to process.
