- successfully completed MHF4U (Advanced Functions) or equivalent and

Students must also submit application to graduate from a certificate program. Applications should be obtained from and filed with the unit administering the certificate program.

The Faculty does not award certificates retroactively. Refer to the Academic Standards section for details of the undergraduate certificate minimum standards.
