Professional development students may be assigned an advisor from an appropriate department or program area. In some cases, enrollment in specific courses requires the approval of both the instructor and the advisor.
Professional development students are subject to the Graduate Academic Regulations of the Curry School of Education. Students in the professional development category may earn up to 12 graduate credits, or credits earned in one full-time semester on Grounds, which might be applied toward a degree. Such credit must be approved by their advisor. All other University of Virginia course work which is applied to a degree must be earned after admission to that degree program. Students planning to change their status to any degree program are responsible for knowing the various requirements for admission to, and completion of, that degree. These policies also apply to off-grounds degree programs and students taking courses through Continuing Education. Fifth-year students continuing directly on from their bachelors' programs at the University must take 12 credits per semester.
