All requests for advanced standing by admitted, transfer, or enrolled students are processed on a course-by-course basis by the Office of the Dean. Courses must be at the graduate level to be considered for advanced standing. Students should submit a letter to the Office of the Dean listing the course(s) under consideration. Students must provide an official course description, transcript, and syllabus for each course previously taken. It is expected that a minimum grade equal to a B would have been achieved in the petitioned class. The decision to grant or deny advanced standing will be made by the department in consultation with the CDMI Dean's Office.
