Apply and Register for Classes

Please review step-by-step application, registration and payment instructions. In order to qualify for the deeply discounted tuition of $800, educators must apply and receive approval to register at the discounted rate. Upon receiving approval to register, you’ll be invited to register yourself online in the class or classes of your choosing. This procedure is outlined in the tabs below.

Currently Previewing Spring 2021 Classes

Registration for spring 2021 classes will open on Wednesday, November 18. Classes will begin on Tuesday, January 19.

In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, all classes will be offered as hybrid (combined on-campus and online instruction) and online-only classes (synchronous remote and asynchronous instruction). Doing so minimizes classroom exposure while maximizing classroom usage across the campus. Review the University’s spring plan and SPCS COVID-19 response page.

The schedule details on the class listing may be more detailed than provided in BannerWeb, our online registration portal. Be sure to review the course dates to confirm live class dates, both on campus and online.

Visit the Virginia Department of Education Licensure page for details on renewal requirements. Graduate classes count 90 points toward total renewal requirements. Be sure classes you plan to take will address any additional endorsement or licensure requirements.
