Why Choose the Hotel Management Certificate?

The Hotel Management Certificate is designed for individual seeking to qualify for new positions, those in need of expanding or retooling their skill sets or adding new skills that will open up new opportunities in the hotel industry.

Admission Requirements

Any person admitted to a Ferris State University degree program may enroll in courses for undergraduate COB certificates. No more than 50% of the credits in a certificate may be transferred from another institution. If a student is in a FSU degree-seeking program, the certificate will not be granted if more than 50% of the certificate credits are required in the program/major.

Individuals wanting to advance their career, but not admitted to an FSU degree program, may also earn undergraduate COB certificates through the non-degree program.

Admission/registration process for individuals seeking only a certificate:

  • Individuals wishing only to complete a COB certificate may enroll as a non-degree student restricted to a maximum of 9 credits per semester and a total of 15 credits.
  • Unless it is determined that regular program admission criteria should be met in order to complete the certificate successfully and be a contributing member of the course, non-degree students need only show proof of a 2.35 high school GPA where competency is required and complete the simple non-degree application process by accessing the FSU website. FSU provides part-time non-degree students with a streamlined method to register early for day or evening courses on the FSU campus through the Educational and Career Counseling Center located in Starr 313.
  • An advisor can be assigned by the College of Business in the certificate program.

    Admission process for non-degree certificate students wishing to pursue a bachelor or associate’s degree:
  • If the student decides to pursue a bachelor or associate’s degree, admission criteria for the College of Business is initiated when the “Program Change Form” request is processed.
  • The student will then complete the regular admission process for FSU.

    Any mitigating circumstances will be considered on an individual basis by the College of Business Dean’s Office.

    More Information:
    Additional guidance can be found on the College of Business Webpage under the Admissions tab.

  • Graduation Requirements

    A Ferris student will receive this certificate after completion of the requirements for the certificate with a minimum 2.0 grade point average in the certificate courses.

    No more than 50% of the credits required for this certificate may be transferred from another institution, nor will this certificate be granted if more than six of the certificate credits are specifically required in the student's major.
