To enter the bachelor's degree portion of this program, students should first complete an Associate of Science in Engineering degree (or equivalent) at their local participating community college. Students who earn an overall grade-point average (GPA) of 3.4 or higher in their associate degree program (and only A’s and B’s in their math, science, and engineering courses) will likely be automatically admitted to the U.Va. portion of the program. Other students can apply for admission to the U.Va. portion of the program like any other student applying for admission to U.Va. Engineering degree programs. The detailed articulation (transfer) agreement can be found here.
All transfer students (including those eligible for automatic admission) need to complete the U.Va. transfer application by the March 1st deadline. The link to the U.Va. undergraduate application page can be found here. Transfer applicants must complete the main application as well as the U.Va. supplement. In the application supplement, students wishing to participate in the PRODUCED program must check the box indicating such interest. Also students are also strongly encouraged to apply for financial aid. The link to the U.Va. financial aid office can be found here. The financial aid forms are available under the "Apply for Financial Aid" link on the left side of the page.
Working? Have a family? No problem.
The PRODUCED in Virginia program is being established with the idea that enrolled students may be working and thus unable to pursue their degree full-time. Thus, students entering the U.Va. portion of the program will be able to complete the post-associate degree bachelor's over two or three years, during which they take either a full load of twelve or more credit hours per semester or no more than seven course credits at any one time. For more information and specific course offerings, visit our engineering science degree page. Students are expected to complete the U.Va. portion of this program in five years.
In general, U.Va. courses in this program will be delivered from instructors in Charlottesville simultaneously to students on-grounds at U.Va. and students distributed across Virginia. Courses will most often be live, during the day and available at a student's computer desktop. Students will be able to access classes from a variety of venues, including:
This flexibility allows students to work on course materials in a place of their choosing. Students need to be able to attend the live classes during the day, on a regular basis. At present, travel to Charlottesville is necessary for selected laboratory activities in several of the program's classes. Additionally, a handful of visits to Charlottesville are required for completion of a student’s advanced independent project.
