Certificate Graduation Assessment
*Formerly known as the Certificate e-Portfolio - name change effective fall 2021*
The Certificate Graduation Assessment serves as the culminating learning outcomes assessment for students preparing to graduate from the School's certificate programs. The Certificate Graduation Assessment is an opportunity for students to reflect on their cumulative experiences in the certificate programs. The contents of the Certificate Graduation Assessment focus on professional skills and knowledge developed during the student's coursework. After ascertaining that all required materials are present, the Certificate Graduation Assessment is evaluated by a Faculty Committee consisting of a minimum of two full-time faculty members.
The Certificate Graduation Assessment is a separate process from the MLIS/MSIM Graduation Assessment. Students need to submit a separate Graduation Assessment for the MLIS or MSIM degree and for each completed certificate. If you are looking for information about MLIS/MSIM Graduation Assessment, please refer to the Graduation Assessment page.
The Certificate Graduation Assessment is a graduation requirement for any new student beginning January 2016 or after.
Note: Students enrolled prior to January 2016 who choose to add the Graduate Certificate in Information Management (GCIM) or the Graduate Certificate in Public Library Services to Children and Young Adults (GCPLSCYA) are not required to complete this requirement. Students who add the Graduate Certificate in Archival Administration (GCAA) must complete this requirement if they complete INF 7710 during/after Fall 2016.
