Graduate Certificates and Financial Aid
You can find a list of graduate certificates that qualify for federal financial aid here. If you have additional questions regarding financial aid, please reach out to the Student Financial Aid Office at 314-516-5526.

Graduate Certificate vs Teacher Certification
There is a distinct difference between a graduate certificate and teacher certification.  A graduate certificate is a credential awarded by UMSL.  They are managed by the Graduate School in much the same way as a master’s degree.  The table below lists all the graduate certificate programs offered by UMSL.  If you have any questions about applying for a graduate certificate, please contact graduate admissions at gradadm@umsl.edu or 314-516-5458.

Teacher Certification is a process of the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.  The state sets the requirements and evaluates applicants.  The Graduate School is not directly involved in this process.  The College of Education runs UMSL’s programs that lead to teacher certification.  If you have any questions about how to obtain teacher certification, you should contact the Advising Office at 314-516-5937.
