The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies Program
In Partnership with Tidewater Community College

Earn a U.Va. degree without leaving Hampton Roads.

University of Virginia BIS Information Sessions

The University of Virginia and Tidewater Community College offer an adult degree completion program exclusively for Tidewater Community College students. The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) program is a part-time, but rigorous, undergraduate degree program with evening and weekend classes designed to meet the educational needs of the adult student.

This transfer program builds on students' previous college work and offers liberal arts courses that promote critical thinking and analytical skills.   Dedicated faculty, individual advising and small classes provide a small college experience within a large university.

  Qualifications

Students applying to the UVA BIS degree program must:

  • Have 60 semester credits of transferable college course work from one or more regionally accredited colleges or universities with a grade of C or better in each course.  At least 15 transferable credits must be from TCC.

  • Be at least four years past high school graduation.
