How to Apply

The Certificate in Translation & Interpretation (T&I) is only open to those enrolled in any undergraduate degree-seeking program at FIU. For those students who do not meet this requirement, the university provides the opportunity to take up to five (5) courses as a non-degree-seeking student. This way you can get the training you need in order to opt for state and national certification exams for translators and interpreters, leading to a career in the field. You can apply to become a non-degree-seeking student here.


The T&I Certificate requires a total of 18 credits (6 full-semester courses) in translation or interpretation (SPT 3000 and 4000 levels.) Students should start with the Foundations courses (SPT 3800 and/or 3812) and then take the remaining credits in any combination of SPT courses (internships are optional toward the end of the program of studies).

To contact the OneStop Enrollment Office, please call (305) 348-7000, email onestop@fiu.edu, or visit the office in SASC 126 at the Modesto Maidique Campus (MMC).
