Advanced Standing

Advanced Standing is awarded to a student upon demonstration of acquired knowledge of a course's content through university or professional courses. The student is given advanced standing but this does not reduce the number of credit hours or fees required by an existing program.

Up to 9 credit hours of advanced standing will be offered to holders of the following designations:

  • CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant)
  • CA (Chartered Accountant)
  • CGA (Certified General Accountant)
  • CMA (Certified Management Accountant)
  • CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst)
