Advanced Standing

Admission candidates may be granted advanced standing in a degree program by transfer of courses from other accredited post-secondary institutions, advanced placement examination, recognized equivalent military courses, credit by challenge examinations, or previous relevant experience.

Consideration of previous relevant experience for credit is initiated by a completed academic portfolio to the department chairs through the Dean of Academic Affairs. If approved, the portfolio is returned to the Office of the Registrar with the signatures of approval from the programís department chair, the credit-granting department, and the Academic Dean. The college may require a challenge exam in these cases.

Advanced standing toward a degree program is subject to the following restrictions: no more than 50% of the total required credits may be obtained by advanced standing for an associate degree or the +2 portion of a bachelorís degree. No more than 50% of the total major technical course credits in an academic program may be obtained by advanced standing.
