Advanced Standing

A student bringing transfer credit may be granted advanced standing to replace required courses.

  • In undergraduate programs, students may transfer up to 49% of the credits required for a major for advanced standing, unless specifically prohibited by the department. Any prohibitions will be noted in the program sections of this catalog. The courses must be equivalent in content and equal in credit weight to be considered.
  • Students requesting advanced standing should understand that hours granted in advanced standing must be made-up with other hours to meet the graduation requirements (60 hours for associate and 120 hours for bachelor). Advanced standing is normally established at the transcript review. Advanced standing requests must be made prior to the semester in which the course in question occurs.
