Currency of Coursework

Coursework applied to a student’s degree program should normally be completed within ten years of the awarding of the degree. Students who are nearing this ten-year limit for application of coursework, based on program re-entry, prior transfer credit, etc., are advised to develop a program completion plan with their advisor to ensure that all previously completed credits will be counted toward degree requirements. In this process, a student may request to be assessed by exam for currency on any coursework that exceeds the ten-year limit.

Alternatively, new or re-entering students whose prior coursework exceeds the ten-year limit may request to demonstrate current competency by examination up to the advanced standing credit limitations for each degree program as specified elsewhere in this catalog. Advanced standing granted is also subject to the ten year limit for currency and will be removed from application to program requirements if the time limit is exceeded.
