Graduate students who are currently pursuing a degree at the University of Delaware may take up to three of the required certificate courses without applying for admission into the certificate program. However, to take four or more required courses students must apply by completing an application form available from the Fashion and Apparel Studies Department and submitting essay responses to the following questions:
- What are your interests and objectives and how does pursuing the graduate certificate in socially responsible and sustainable apparel business relate to them?
- What experience, if any, have you had in the apparel, textile, or footwear industries?
- Are there any special circumstances related to your academic record that you feel we should know about?
Upon notification of being admitted into the graduate certificate program, UD students complete a change of classification form.
