Grades and Honors

Grades and Honors


A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for all courses taken in satisfaction of the certificate requirements. If you take more than the minimum number of courses needed to fulfill the certificate requirements, then you may utilize the highest grades in other health law courses taken when completing the required 3.0 GPA for the certificate.

A minimum grade of 3.0 is required for the writing requirement in the certificate program.

Courses that are taken on a pass-fail basis (except internships) will not be counted toward fulfilling the certificate requirements. Externships that are taken on a pass-fail basis can fulfill the lawyering-skills requirement and will not be computed in the GPA requirement.


Honors in the certificate program will be awarded to students earning a GPA of 3.6 or higher in all of the health law courses they take (including the required courses and any additional elective health law courses).
