Eligibility

An application form for the Graduate Certificate in Nonwoven Science and Technology is required. Applicants submit a resume identifying educational preparation and work experiences and official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate course work.

Applicants must meet one of the following requirements:

  • Be a graduate of an accredited four-year college or university, and have a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4-point scale in their last 60 credit hours of undergraduate study
  • Be a degree student in good standing in an NC State University graduate program
  • Have a master’s degree

Applicants who do not meet the GPA requirements may be admitted provisionally based on past work experiences as a professional in textiles or a textile related field. Students who are admitted provisionally must earn at least a “B” average in the first three courses of the certificate program in order obtain full admission into the certificate program.

The student will receive a letter of approval upon program acceptance. Students prepare and submit a contract using the Certificate Contract Application prior to completing the first course after being accepted into the program.

Students may begin taking courses for the certificate in Fall or Spring. While all courses can be taken through Textiles Online Programs, students must, at their own expense, commit to spending one week on campus in order to complete laboratory requirements.
