Heath Care Compliance Certificate Approval Process

The following describes The Health Care Compliance Certificate Program approval process for students who are currently enrolled in a J.D. or LL.M. program at American University Washington College of Law. No application is necessary prior to enrolling in the required courses, but students who are interested in taking a concentration of courses in health care law and compliance to complete the certificate requirements should contact Professor Asha Scielzo (scielzo@wcl.american.edu) as soon as possible for academic advising.

Any student who anticipates successfully completing the certificate requirements by the end of the final semester of his/her degree program must submit a copy of his/her transcript to Professor Scielzo for an initial review no later than six weeks prior to the end of the final exam period for the final semester of his/her degree program.  An unofficial transcript will be accepted.  At the end of the final semester, if the Registrar certifies that the student has earned an average of 3.0 or higher within the courses the student completed to fulfill the Health Care Compliance Certificate requirements, the Health Law and Policy Program Director, Professor Lindsay Wiley, will certify that the student has earned the Health Care Compliance Certificate.
