Governor Mike Beebe and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Hamburg signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in August 2011. A major component of the MOU described the creation of a graduate level educational program in Regulatory Science. UAMS and FDA’s NCTR have collaborated in the development of a graduate program in Regulatory Sciences. The initial step of the program was the creation of a Graduate Certificate in Regulatory Sciences (GCRS). The GCRS includes four three-hour courses. Classes for the GCRS began in the 2012 Fall Semester.
All students who are admitted and enroll in the Graduate Certificate in Regulatory Sciences online degree plan at UAMS will be charged the in-state tuition rate. Enrolled students will be required to pay all applicable fees.
