  • Advanced course placement is not granted in the PAS program.
  • All students must complete the entire program. 
  • If a student believes they have completed coursework at Grand Valley State University that satisfies program requirements, they may submit a letter to the program after acceptance.
    • This letter would include the official transcript of the course, the course grade, and the syllabus of record.
  • Approval is required from the individual GVSU course instructors and the PAS program.
  • This information will only be addressed after acceptance into the GVSU PAS program.


*This information does not pertain to high school 'advanced placement' coursework.
