The School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) opens the doors of the University of Virginia to almost 9,000 nontraditional adult learners for continuing education. With Academic Centers in Abingdon, Charlottesville, Falls Church, Newport News, Richmond, and Roanoke, the school strives to meet the continuing education needs of the Commonwealth's citizens.
It is the mission of SCPS to be responsive to nontraditional learners by providing high quality continuing education opportunities that help them achieve their personal and professional goals. The commitment to serving a diverse community of learners is apparent in the continuing education programs and courses offered at convenient times and places. Students enrolled through SCPS have the option to learn in the classroom, online, and through other modes of delivery.
