Up to 12 credit hours of graduate courses may be transferred. Only courses with a grade of B or better that have not been applied toward another degree may be transferred. The request for credit transfer must include the following documents: a completed Request Approval of Transfer Credits form, a description of course content and level, and an official transcript. The documents are provided to the ESE Student Services Coordinators to facilitate processing of the request. If the student is already admitted into a UVA program, then the request for credit transfer must be pre-approved before the course is taken. All transfer credits are subject to the approval of the student's advisor and the Engineering School dean’s office.
VEO students may transfer up to 15 credits from other schools participating in the VEO program toward their UVA ME degree. The other VEO institutions are George Mason University, Old Dominion University, Virginia Commonwealth University and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). Students in the on-Grounds ME program may register for up to 12 credit hours of courses offered through VEO.
Time limit: All requirements for the ME/VEO degree must be completed within seven years after matriculation to the graduate program.
