SCHEV Report on Cooperative Degree Legislation

schev_report_coop_degree_program_sept_2016Virginia Statute §23.1-909, enacted in 2015, states: “The Secretary of Education and the director of the Council [SCHEV], in consultation with each public institution of higher education and nonprofit private institution of higher education, shall develop a plan to establish and advertise a cooperative degree program whereby any undergraduate student enrolled at any public institution of higher education or nonprofit private institution of higher education may complete, through the use of online courses at any such institution, the course credit requirements to receive a degree at a tuition cost not to exceed $4,000, or the lowest cost that is achievable, per academic year.” Secretary Dietra Trent and SCHEV Director Peter Blake submitted a progress report on October 1, 2016.

NLCVA was asked to share opinions and insights about the proposed legislation as the progress report was developed. That input is included in the last page of the document.
