Annual Conference GEM Certificate

We are pleased to offer the Annual GEM Summit Graduate Enrollment Management Certificate this year!  As NAGAP solidifies its status as the leader in graduate enrollment management, the GEM Certificate provides opportunities for members to expand their skillsets in admissions, marketing, and recruitment.

What is the GEM Summit Graduate Enrollment Certificate?

It is a certificate of completion that is earned by attending a series of sessions at each NAGAP Annual Summit. The certificate includes sessions that address admissions, marketing, and recruitment to help enhance members' skillsets across the GEM lifecycle. 

Why should I earn the Certificate?

Many of our members work in admissions or recruitment and possess a depth of skills in these areas. As roles evolve more broadly into graduate enrollment management, it is important for our members to be prepared for leadership opportunities in areas like financial aid, strategic planning, student services, alumni, and other areas. The session topics will change each year, so you can earn the certificate as many times as you'd like. 

How do I participate?

Indicate your interest on the 2021 Graduate Enrollment Management Summit registration form. To complete the 2021 certificate you will attend at least two sessions in each domain and indicate your participation by June 1, 2021, as requested. You will receive more information closer to the Summit. 

What exactly do I earn?

Once you complete your participation, NAGAP will provide you with a certificate via email signifying your accomplishment. 

Is there a charge to participate?

No, there is no cost to participate. Simply indicate your interest when you register for the GEM Summit, follow the provided instructions, attend the necessary sessions, and receive your certificate upon completion.
