All requests for advanced standing by newly admitted, transfer, or enrolled students are processed on a course-by-course basis by the Office of the Dean. To request such consideration, a student must submit a letter of request and the request form to the Office of the Dean in which the student lists a course(s) previously taken, which might be similar in content to a professional course(s) that he/she is scheduled to take. The student must also provide an official course description(s) and a syllabus (syllabi) of the course(s) previously taken. All requests must be submitted at least 3 weeks prior to the start of the course being considered. Advanced standing will be considered for coursework taken in which a letter grade of C or better has been earned. A C- letter grade is not acceptable for advanced standing consideration.
