Why Choose the Certificate in Human Resource Management

The Advanced Studies Certificate in Human Resource Management provides an opportunity for students in any major to gain the basic knowledge and skills in the field of Human Resources required of supervisors and managers in all areas of an organization.

This program is also offered at other Ferris State sites.

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.
