In partnership with Richard Bland College of William and Mary, CodeVA is able to offer free college credit for completion of the CodeVA training program. The goal of the program is to ensure teachers across the state will receive the training necessary to educate students in computer science.
Richard Bland College is an extension of William & Mary with the mission to prepare students for university transfer through academically rigorous programs grounded in the liberal arts tradition. Located south of Petersburg, it offers affordable, high-quality two year degree with transfer agreements with forty colleges and universities.
Teachers who have completed the CodeVA training programs for the Coaches Academies, Exploring Computer Science or AP Computer Science Principles. The entire training program must be completed to be awarded the credit.
The credit is for RBC 299 Special Topics in Computer Science. The course is three credits and will be assigned a letter grade. The credit can be used for relicensure and/or towards an add-on endorsement in computer science.
You will need to request an official transcript through the Richard Bland Registrar’s office.
Only if you participate in two trainings. As an example, you complete both the Exploring Computer Science and the AP Computer Science Principles trainings.
A letter grade (A-F) will be assigned upon completion of the training program.
The credits are processed after the final Saturday sessions in March and should be available in Richard Bland’s system by July or August.
No, since Richard Bland is a Junior College it issues undergraduate credits.
