Who We Serve

The UVA Career Center serves all degree-seeking students, regardless of major or year. Students in the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, McIntire School of Commerce, Curry School of Education, Department of Economics, and School of Engineering and Applied Sciences can also use career counseling services offered through those schools. Masters and Ph.D. students in the College of Arts & Sciences can schedule an appointment with the Graduate Career Development Office in the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.

Darden School of Business, Law school, and Medical school students should seek counseling from their own career services offices. The UVA Career Center does NOT serve students in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, with the exception of Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies students.

Accessibility Statement

The UVA Career Center is committed to accommodating the diverse needs of the student body. If you or someone you know requires an accommodation for a disability in order to fully access the format, materials, or presentation of our resources, please reach out to us at Hoos@virginia.edu so we can explore potential options. Students with disabilities may also wish to work with the Student Disability Access Center to discuss a range of options for removing potential barriers at the Career Center, including official accommodations. Please visit their website for information on this process and to apply for services online: https://www.studenthealth.virginia.edu/sdac. If you have already been approved for accommodations through SDAC, please let us know so we can develop an implementation plan together.
