Per the Graduate School Policy, undergraduate students who wish to enroll in graduate level courses (500 and above) may only transfer six (6) credit hours into the certificate program for courses not taken as part of another degree requirement. Therefore, to receive the Sport and Entertainment Venue Management (SEVM) Graduate Certificate, current undergraduates can only take six (6) credit hours of 500 level SEVM courses before graduation. Upon graduation, the student must apply to the graduate certificate program through the Graduate School using the steps above to complete the remaining courses. The same course restrictions apply.
Non-Degree Students (PBS)
Students enrolled in Post-baccalaureate Studies (PBS) through NC State can transfer a maximum of six (6) credit hours (B or better grade) into the certificate program. PBS students wishing to do this must apply to the graduate certificate program following the procedures above for students not currently enrolled in a graduate program to complete the remaining credits and earn the certificate.
