Culinary Advanced Standing

Prospective students who possess advanced knowledge and skills in food-related areas may apply for the Culinary or Baking & Pastry Advanced Standing Program after they have been accepted to the university. Acceptance into the program is based on a review of the student's academic records, a letter of recommendation from a food-related employer and/or teacher, and a passing grade of 70 or greater on the Advanced Standing examination.

It is generally recommended that applicants to this program complete an advanced food service curriculum or have a minimum of 2–5 years of extensive food service work experience.

Students who are selected for this accelerated program are required to complete a 10-week summer program. Upon successful completion of the summer program, students attain sophomore standing in the fall.
