Advanced Standing

Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine

All requests for advanced standing by admitted, transfer or enrolled students are processed on a course-by-course basis by the office of the CCOM Dean. Courses must be at the graduate level to be considered for advanced standing. A student must submit a letter to the Department Chair in which the student lists the course(s). The student must provide an official course description(s), a transcript, and a syllabus(syllabi) of the course(s) previously taken. It is expected that a minimum grade equal to a "B" would have been achieved in the class being petitioned. The decision to grant or deny advanced standing will be made by the CCOM Dean's Office in consultation with the department. The student will be advised of the decision by the CCOM Dean's Office.
