Professional Development for Alumni

University of Richmond alumni — those who have earned an undergraduate or graduate certificate or degree, including juris doctorate — are eligible for a 25% discount on the tuition fee for almost any SPCS class. The Spider Spirit alumni discount applies to all classes, so you can complete a single class, or earn an entire degree, using the 25% discount.

Build your professional credentials

Most alumni using their tuition discount enroll in a class that will give them a professional boost. Humanities, Interdisciplinary Studies, Data Analytics or English classes are among those that might provide exactly the professional credentials you’re seeking to advance your career.

Brush up on your skills

Staying up-to-date on the latest innovations in information technology, industry standards and communications technologies is important in today’s globally interconnected workplace. One way to quickly but thoroughly update your skills is to take a class in the subject.

Earn a post-bachelor’s certificate or master’s degree

Using your alumni discount, you can start earning post-bachelor’s certificate in Paralegal Studies, Information Security,  Information Systems or Data Analytics. Or you can earn a master’s degree in Education or Teaching, HR Management, Liberal Arts or Nonprofit Studies. You may use your alumni discount toward every class in the post-bachelor’s certificate.
