Preliminary score sheets or official certificates will be accepted for the HR certification exams. In the event that preliminary scores cannot be provided the day of the exam, please note that we will need to receive your official certificate by the appropriate date. Official certificates can take 4-8 weeks from the close of the testing window to process and be delivered to you.
Students who choose to take a certification exam after completing their coursework should be sure to register for graduation during the semester they are sitting for the exam. Additional information can be found here.
Certifications must be active at the time of graduation.
Submit a scanned copy of your preliminary score sheet OR official certificate and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org so your exam can be posted to your academic record. This will indicate that this degree requirement has been met.
*PLEASE NOTE: Villanova does NOT automatically receive copies of your certification exam results - you must submit them to the HRD department via the instructions above.
