Please note the following:

  • If you are also in an online degree program, only 6.0 units from your degree program or the certificate can count towards both. In other words, to graduate with both an online degree and the EMPR certificate, you would need a total of 99.0 units (instead of 90.0 units).
  • Due to the overlap in content between the courses in the EMPR certificate and the LAW certificate, students are not eligible to receive both certificates.
  • No more than 6.0 units of core courses may be transfer credits from outside Queen’s University.
