International Enrollments

UVA works to provide global access to its online degree programs. While the University tracks issues related to international authorization and licensure, it is a student’s responsibility to understand requirements related to whether an online degree will be recognized outside the United States; how the collection of student data may be used in another country; and whether withholding taxes (in addition to the price of tuition) will apply.  Some countries may not formally recognize foreign online degrees, which may have implications for students who later seek to enroll in other educational programs, or for those who seek employment with that country’s government or other employers requiring specific credentials.

International students considering an academic program that leads to a professional license should first confirm with the appropriate professional licensing board in their country of residence or the country where they intend to work as to whether a UVA online degree will be recognized.
