Commonwealth Graduate Engineering Program
University of Virginia

Degree Program Requirements:

Required Hours
30 semester hours

A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 must be maintained. All grades earned are figured into the GPA.

Only courses in which at least a C is achieved will be applied toward the degree; however, GPA calculation includes all grades.

Academic Probation
A student is placed on academic probation when his or her GPA falls below 3.0. If the GPA has not been raised to 3.0 by completion of the next three courses, the student will be subject to dismissal from the program.

The student will be offered admission by letter, a copy of which must be signed and dated by the student and returned to the Graduate Records Office by completion of the second course. Otherwise, the student is no longer eligible to enroll in the Commonwealth Graduate Engineering Program courses. Until a signed acceptance is submitted, the student is not matriculated with the University of Virginia.

Plan of Study
A plan of study should be completed and submitted to the Graduate Records Office by mid-term of the second semester. The plan can be altered later if program changes are made.

Transferring Courses
A transfer form should be submitted with the plan of study if classes taken at other participating universities are to be applied toward a University of Virginia degree. Check individual degree programs for number of hours which may be transferred.

Degree Application
During the semester prior to the one in which the student plans to graduate, a degree application must be submitted to the Graduate Records Office, along with the appropriate fee.
