Applying Certificate Courses Toward The MS-CF&RM Degree
Students will often take the Computational Finance certificate program with the thought that they may subsequently want to enter the MS-CF&RM degree program. Upon successful completion of the certificate with a strong grade point average (GPA) and acceptance into the MS-CF&RM program, such students will be able to apply up to 12 of their course credits toward the MS-CF&RM degree.
Considering the MS-CF&RM degree after a certificate? Then submit an application through the Graduate School for UW Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) status when applying for one of the certificate programs.
For more information about GNM status, visit: http://www.grad.washington.edu/admissions/gnm.shtml.
For admission, please apply by filling out the online application with the Graduate School: https://www.grad.washington.edu/applForAdmiss/
- For "Application Type," GNM applicants should select "Graduate Non-Matriculated"
- For "Graduate Program," please select "Computational Finance and Risk Management-Online" if you are an online student and "Computational Finance & Risk Management" if you are taking a residential, classroom section of a Computational Finance degree course.
Policy on Applying Credits from CF&RM Certificate Program to MS-CF&RM Degree
The fee-based MS degree in Computational Finance and Risk Management (MS-CF&RM), requires a minimum of 42 fee-based credits. To be specific with regard to double counting: a course that a student has taken in fulfillment of their graduate program course requirements may not be applied toward the MS-CF&RM degree. Petitions to transfer more than 12 credits will be considered on a case-by-case basis if such petition is submitted not later than the end of autumn quarter.
