Graduate Certificate in Adapted Physical Education


This 15-credit graduate certificate in adapted physical education (APE) enables students to pursue and attain a certificate without necessarily pursuing a graduate degree. With approval, coursework in the certificate may later be applied to partially meet requirements for an MSEd in Physical Education and its concentration in adapted physical education.

Admission to the Program

Matriculation into the APE certificate program depends on several factors. Minimum standards for admission include:

  1. a bachelor's degree
  2. applicants must demonstrate a relevant knowledge base, including, at minimum, 12 credits in the professional field of physical education
  3. GPA requirements:
    1. Students with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 and above will be eligible for regular admission into this program.
    2. Students with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of between 2.5 and 2.999 may be recommended for conditional admission. Students granted conditional admission must successfully fulfill a conditional contract established by an advisor.
    3. Students with an undergraduate GPA below 2.5 are ineligible for admission

The application process is managed by the Graduate School, and application materials are available online.
