In Progress College Coursework Section

Some colleges don't require that you fill out in progress college coursework on the StandOut Admissions Network site. The Required Profile Sections article provides information on how to tell which colleges on your list require this section.

This section of your Profile lets you report your academic work for any college-level courses that you are currently taking. This is a different section than Completed College Coursework, to learn about entering your already completed college coursework, see our help desk article here

If you’ve received a final grade for a course, enter it in Completed College Coursework instead.

Any dual credit coursework for which you receive college credit should be entered only in your high school coursework for the appropriate grade, not either College Coursework section. To learn more about dual credit coursework, see our help desk article here.

How to use the In Progress College Coursework section

Use the College Information section first to add to your profile the college(s) where you took the course(s), if you're currently enrolled, how many credits you've earned to date, and the total number of college credits that you’ve earned at all of the colleges you’ve attended. 

Once that section is completed, the system will determine if you need to fill out In Progress College Coursework dependent on your answers and the requirements from your Schools. 


If the In Progress College Coursework section is required, following along on your Profile will take you there from College Information. You may also navigate there using the side bar, it will appear after College Information on your My Profile menu. 


If the section is not required, you will move on to the next required section, and In Progress College Coursework will appear in the Optional Sections part of the menu at the bottom. 


Adding courses

Using your attendance dates from the College Information section, In Progress College Coursework will show you which colleges need coursework added.


Click the "Add Courses" button to be guided through the necessary information needed:

  • Choose the schedule system for the college (e.g. semester or quarter).
