The UVA School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) is proud to announce a Guaranteed Admission Agreement (GAA) with the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) for its Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree program.
Students who have completed a transferable associate’s degree from a VCCS college, with 45 or more credits earned from VCCS, and have earned a GPA in VCCS coursework of 3.5 or better, will be eligible for guaranteed admission. Those applying under the GAA must submit a letter of intent and official transcripts to Admission Services by February 15. A completed online application for admission must be submitted by May 15.
This is the second GAA between SCPS and the VCCS. In 2015, the School formalized a GAA for its Bachelor of Professional Studies in Health Sciences Management. Additionally, the University has three GAAs with VCCS: The College of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and Nursing. The Commonwealth and the Virginia Community College System stress the usage of GAAs to provide a gateway to four-year colleges and universities.
The BIS, a degree completion program, is designed for working adults to complete a UVA undergraduate degree on a part-time basis through online, evening, and weekend classes. Students complete concentrations in business, the liberal arts, and other professional areas.
Applications are now being accepted for Fall 2017.
