I’m trying to add the certificate, but am not given the option.

It may have to do with your catalog, that’s where the Catalog Year Update Form comes in. You can update/add a certificate to your plan if say it wasn’t offered in their catalog year via this form (https://registrar.boisestate.edu/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Catalog-Year-Update.pdf)

Please contact the Registrar’s office with any questions.

Will I get a physical copy of my certificate or is it included on my diploma?

 You will receive a certificate separate from your diploma that will be mailed. It is not noted on the diploma but it will be noted on the transcript.

Is there a fee for the certificate?

 Yes, there is a fee of $20 that will be charged to your BroncoWeb account when applying for graduation.
