Did you know that foreign language is a requirement to graduate from the College of Arts and Sciences and the Commerce School?
Most transfers we meet with are surprised to hear this. And unfortunately, this means that they are already behind in their pre-requisite course requirements.
When putting the final touches on your fall course schedule this year, make sure to sign up for those foreign language courses. The McIntire School of Commerce requires coursework or exemptions (through the SAT II/AP) through the 202 level of a language. If you are a Virginia community college student interested in the Guaranteed Admission Agreement (GAA), these courses are also required to be completed by the end of the spring semester prior to the fall in which you want to enter.
If you are not applying under the GAA, you are strongly, strongly encouraged to get started on this coursework before you apply. The more core courses you have while transferring, the more competitive you'll be in the admissions process.
