All requests for advanced standing by newly admitted, transfer, readmitted, or enrolled students are processed on a course-by-course basis. Advanced standing will be considered for coursework taken in which a letter grade of C or better has been achieved. To request such consideration, a student should submit a letter of request to the Office of the Dean, CSU–COP 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. Additionally, the student is advised to provide an official course description(s) and a syllabus (syllabi) of the course(s) previously taken. All requests must be submitted prior to the start of the course being considered. The materials will be forwarded to the appropriate course coordinators who will provide a recommendation to the CSU–COP Dean. The Dean will either grant or deny advanced standing.
