To earn a Certificate in Taxation, 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. Three courses are required for a total of 9 or 10 credits. Two electives are required. All courses are 3 credits unless otherwise indicated. Certificate courses may not be audited.
An applicant must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.20 in the Certificate courses. If a student takes more than the 15 credits required for the Certificate, all of the taxation courses will factor into the final GPA. A student must declare on the Certificate application form all of the taxation courses taken, even if a grade is not yet known. A student may earn a maximum of one Certificate while enrolled in law school.
