Graduate Advanced Standing
Advanced Standing is awarded based on a review of applicable undergraduate (or) graduate degrees completed. Credits which are applicable to a subsequent graduate program at Lehman College may be posted as Advanced Standing credits on the official graduate transcript. Regardless of academic or professional background, all graduate students are required to fulfill the residency requirement of Lehman College.
All students requesting advanced standing must fill out the Graduate Advanced Standing application form and submit the appropriate official transcripts during their first semester of study.
Requests for Advanced Standing depends upon the assessment of the Program Director and the Office of Graduate Studies. No evaluation can be performed or credit granted until the student has matriculated in a graduate program at Lehman College. The submission of an application for Advanced Standing does not guarantee approval, and all decisions are final and not subject to appeal.
