Transferring credits (teaching)

Prospective students must select from the following Virginia Community College System (VCCS) courses in order to complete the transfer module. All courses must be completed within the VCCS and students must earn a grade of C or better in each course if they wish to transfer the set as a module. This package will be acceptable at Hollins University as complete fulfillment of the Hollins general education core (Education through Skills and Perspectives). Students do not have to complete the associate’s degree to fulfill the Hollins Transfer Module.

If a student is interested in pursuing a teaching license at Hollins University, we strongly recommend the student take the specific transfer-module courses indicated by teaching on the lists below. These courses will count both for the transfer module and for the Virginia State Department of Education general education courses. We also strongly recommend students set up an appointment to meet with a Hollins education advisor. Please contact Donna Martin (dmartin@hollins.edu).

Elementary Education (pre-K-6th grade)

Secondary Education (Biology, Chemistry, English, Foreign Languages, History and Social Sciences, Physics, and Visual Arts).

Please note: At the community college the student should also plan to take courses in the subject area the student wishes to teach.
