The GIS Certificate Program is designed to meet the needs of both the novice, and experienced GIS professionals. Students who graduate from this program will have a solid understanding of the theoretical basis of GIS and rich hands-on experience with GIS software packages.
The GIS Certificate Program is open to both matriculated and non-matriculated students at the University of Cincinnati. Students can start the program in any quarter/semester. The deadline for application is two years after completion of all required courses. However, students are strongly encouraged to contact an advisor and apply early in the process.
To obtain a GIS certificate, a student must complete 4 required courses specified below, with a minimum grade of C in each course. The certificate will be awarded upon application and satisfactory completion of the required courses.

Lower level courses may be replaced by upper level courses upon approval of the advisor. One of the required courses may be substituted by a similar course taken outside the program. A written petition must be submitted to Dr. Liu or Dr. Wang for such substitution, and it must include well-reasoned justifications, including a thorough comparison of content coverage between the two courses, with the syllabi attached. The petition will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
