Program Description:

The Graduate Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is designed to provide additional training for professionals. Course work focuses on knowledge, skills and competencies for working with students with ASD. The program is composed of four graduate courses that can be incorporated into a master's program of study in Exceptional Education or taken as an add-on to an undergraduate or graduate degree. A 20-hour field experience component is associated with each of the four courses. Pending state approval, persons holding Florida E.S.E. teacher certification may apply the four certificate courses toward State Endorsement in Autism (Administrative Rule 6A-4.01796).

International Student Requirements:

In order to enroll in graduate classes, students must have obtained a baccalaureate or higher degree, prior to the start of the term for which the student is admitted, from a regionally accredited institution or from a recognized foreign institution. International students are not eligible for nondegree/certificate status unless they hold an eligible visa. International applicants are encouraged to begin the application process early. Also, international applicants should ensure all supporting documents, including those required to issue an I-20, are received by the stated application deadline. Only official documentation is accepted and it is the student's responsibility to submit all documents by the application deadline.
