Professional learners enroll as non-degree seeking students to achieve any of the following goals:

  • Get a feel for our program structure before applying to a graduate degree program
  • Take professional studies courses to work toward a Virginia teaching license through the alternate route to licensure
  • Add an endorsement to your existing Virginia license
  • Register for a course or course series for professional development
  • Take graduate-level courses for licensure renewal

Below is a list of things to familiarize yourself with as you explore Professional Learning options:

  1. Professional learning options are offered through non degree seeking admission.   
  2. Refer to the admissions requirements on the program page of your choice for specific admission and enrollment details. You can find a list of all our professional learning offerings here.
  3. In the application form, be sure to choose “Non-degree Student”, the term of your choice (typically Spring, Summer, or Fall, but not “January”), and the School of Education and Human Development and follow all additional prompts.
  4. After your application has been processed, you will be emailed instructions on how to register for courses.
Educators who are interested in taking individual professional development courses will first have to apply for non-degree admission.
