2.30 Advanced Standing Examinations
Revised to 5/98
An examination for advanced standing may be taken by an undergraduate student during the scheduled examination periods, provided that the student has never been registered for or attended class in the subject concerned. A request to take such an exam must be filed with the Registrar at least three weeks before the first day of the examination period. An advanced standing examination shall be given only upon the approval of the Faculty member in charge of the subject, who may require evidence of competence in addition to the examination if the subject normally involves measures of student performance qualitatively different from the examination. A passing grade entitles a student to full credit for the subject. A failing grade will appear on the permanent record except for first-year undergraduate students for whom a failing grade will appear only on the internal record.
Academic Departments may decide to arrange Advanced Standing credit for their graduate students. The Academic Department may do so, in agreement with the faculty member in charge of the subject concerned, who may require evidence of competence in addition to an examination. A passing grade entitles a student to full credit for the subject. A failing grade will appear on the permanent record.
