To earn a Certificate in Tax Law, a student must complete the 86 credit hours required for the Juris Doctor degree and satisfy all JD requirements. Within the course work required for the JD degree, a student must complete 15 credit hours from the listed taxation courses, including three required courses and at least two elective courses. An applicant must earn a minimum GPA of 3.20 in the Certificate courses. If a student takes more than 15 hours of courses from the approved list, all grades earned in those courses will be factored into the minimum 3.20 GPA requirement for the Certificate. Students may apply for only one Certificate.
