Course Registration

While in the Postdoctoral Certificate Program, you will complete all of your course work through Mayo Graduate School. Course registration opens approximately one month before the start of the quarter, and students register for courses through Self-Service Banner.

You are encouraged to participate in no more than 50 percent of your program credits prior to admission into the Postdoctoral Certificate Program.

For detailed information on registration, announcements, and annual and quarterly course schedules, visit Mayo Graduate School Course Information.
