Credit Courses

The Division of Continuing Education offers a broad range of credit courses to help individuals meet their learning objectives. These courses, listed elsewhere in the catalog under the appropriate school, carry identical credit to those taught on-Grounds. Class schedules are distributed by the Division's regional centers before the beginning of the fall, spring, and summer sessions. Course offerings are primarily at the graduate and professional levels. Most credit courses are taught in the evening or on weekends.

Within the limits prescribed by the residential faculty of the University and stated in the policies of each school and the Division of Continuing Education, qualified persons may apply courses taken at regional centers for credit toward degrees. The Division of Continuing Education does not award degrees but assists other schools of the University in the design and delivery of off-Grounds graduate degree programs and degree credit courses.

Many students transfer courses taken through the Division to programs at other colleges and universities. Other students use credit courses for renewal of teaching licenses and other professional certificates. In such cases the students should consult their superintendents and the Virginia Department of Education or other certifying bodies for licensing requirements.
