Applicants must possess or be eligible for a valid Virginia Collegiate Professional License or equivalent from another state. Completion of this program meets current eligibility requirements for the Postgraduate Professional License. Course sequencing insures full-time study with completion in a calendar year.
Newly admitted students are assigned the appropriate advisor. The assignment of the advisor generally is not changed unless the student changes his/her degree program. Prior to registration, students are encouraged to consult with their academic advisor regarding course selection and sequence, career goals, and relevant academic policies. Although the academic advisor assists students with curriculum decisions and options, the student bears full responsibility for meeting graduation requirements.
