Enroll in the Aging and Longevity Studies Program

There are two steps necessary for enrolling to earn a certifcate, minor, or social work specialty in aging  from the Aging and Longevity Studies Program.

Step 1.  Complete an enrollment form, and email it to mercedes-bern-klug@uiowa.edu.

Step 2.   When you register for classes on MyUI, please indicate that you are working toward the Aging and Longevity Studies certificate or minor. To do this, click "Student Records" in the MyUI menu, then "Programs of Study and Advisor."   (If you are pursueing the social work specialty in aging, this is not necessary)

Enrollment in the Aging and Longevity Studies Program is open to all students. Once you enroll, you will receive notices about learning and network opportunities in aging, and will be better connected with fellow students and faculty interested in the process of aging and the experience of older adulthood.  In order to earn the certificate or the minor, a student must remain in "good standing"  which includes maintaining a cumilative 2.75 grade point average in certifcate-related classes.

Also, 

During the semester in which you plan to graduate, you need to let the registrar's office know that you have met the requirements for the Aging and Longevity Studies Certificate. When you submit your degree application on MyUI, make sure that you check the boxes for both your degree program and the Aging and Longevity Studies Certificate program. Once the Registrar's office verifies that you have met the requirements for the certificate, the credential will be added to your official record.
