Classification of students by class standing is calculated in terms of hours completed, not in progress. In order for class standing to reflect transfer credit towards completed hours, a student must submit their final transcripts and/or CPE certificates by August 1 for the fall semester or January 4 for the spring semester.
First Year - completion of fewer than 26 hours towards the degree;
Second Year - completion of 26+ credit hours toward the degree;
Third Year - completion of 52+ credit hours toward the degree.
