UVA Edge Flex

Students who want to take specific UVA Edge courses but who do not wish to take the full, six-course program may wish to take advantage of UVA Edge Flex. This may also be a good option for students who already have an undergraduate degree. 

What is UVA Edge Flex?

UVA Edge Flex is a curated suite of three courses drawn from UVA Edge, and is designed for students who want targeted courses in data and human skills.

The three courses include: "Data Literacy," "Digital Essentials," and "High Impact Behavior in the Workplace." All courses are online and designed for adults with responsibilities and competing priorities, using coursework that can be accessed any time. Successful students will earn nine academic credits for their coursework.  

Can I just take one of the classes?

The three courses in the Edge Flex bundle have been carefully selected to provide a blend of high-demand topics. At this time, Edge Flex can only be taken as a three-course package.

When are the UVA Edge Flex classes available?

The courses are offered each term: Fall, Spring and Summer. You can enroll in one or two courses per term. 

Do Edge Flex credits transfer?

Just like the full UVA Edge program, the credits for UVA Edge Flex are designed to be transferable for students who want to build toward a degree. It will ultimately be up to the institution granting the degree to decide whether to accept UVA Edge credits. 

Please note that UVA’s undergraduate degree completion programs in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies will generally accept these credits for students who wish to continue toward a bachelor’s degree. If you’d like to learn more about how you can use your Edge credits to complete your bachelor’s degree at UVA, please contact SCPStransfer@virginia.edu.
