States are normally given three months to comment on the proposals. Standards developed by other recognized international organizations can also be referenced, provided they have been subject to adequate verification and validation.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
