Declaring Candidacy

You can enroll in a specialization program at any time during your studies.

Once you create your student account, you can enroll in a specialization program. Note that the benefit of enrolling early is that it locks in your specialization requirements. This means that even if program requirements change, the requirements to complete your specialization will remain the same for you.

  • You must enroll in the specialization program before enrolling in the Specialization Completion Review.

You have a total of three years to complete the courses for a specialization.

All the necessary units in a specialization must be completed within a three-year window. The clock begins on the first day of your first course in the program. For example, if you started a course on Sept. 5, 2019, you would have to complete all of the required units in this certificate by Sept. 4, 2022.

  • Enrolling in a specialization program does not trigger the beginning of the three-year window. It begins the first day of the first course that applies to the program.
  • The Completion Review process does not have to occur within the three-year timeframe.
