Post Master's Certificates in Advanced QA/RA

These programs are open only to graduates of Temple’s MS in QA/RA or to graduates of other master’s programs by special permission only.

Temple MS Students 
Once you receive your MS from Temple, your academic file is technically “closed” by the University. If you wish to continue in a Post-Master's Certificate program, you must formally apply before taking any courses (otherwise a “lock” is on your academic file and our staff cannot register you).

To apply, you simply need to send hard copy of your application form to the QA/RA Office of Temple University’s School of Pharmacy.  We ask that you include a letter addressed to the Assistant Dean, outlining which four courses you intend to take for your Post-Master’s Certificate in Advanced QA or RA.  We suggest you include two alternate courses, simply to provide yourself with more flexibility with completing the Certificate.  We like to know which courses you wish to take, so we can try to schedule them in upcoming semesters.

Completed applications should be submitted to: 
Temple University School of Pharmacy - QA/RA Graduate Program
425 Commerce Drive, Suite 175
Fort Washington, PA 19034

After you have finished the four courses, you must forward the Notice of Completion by the stipulated deadlines (January 10th for February issuance; May 10th for June issuance; or August 10th for September issuance). If you miss the deadline, you must wait until the next time certificates are processed. Your certificate will be mailed in late February, late June, or late September.

All coursework must be completed in Temple University’s QA/RA graduate program.  Transfer credits from other schools are not accepted towards the Post-Master’s Certificates in Advanced QA or RA.
