Fall 2022 CR GRading accepted for COGS major

The Cognitive Science Program will accept a grade of CR for COGS approved courses students completed in Fall 2022. Choosing CR grading means that you recieved a C or above in the class and it will not be factored into your GPA. There will be a note on your transcript if you choose CR grading explaining its implementation for Fall 22. We will not accept grades of GC for Fall 2022.

Spring 2023 Reminders

-Full time student status in the College is 12 hours. You cannot enroll in over 17 hours of courses without completing a credirt hour overload request form and you can only overload into classes with open seats. Credit  hour overload forms are found on the forms page of the College website. 

-You cannot add classes after Feb. 1, 2023

SIS Academic Requirements Reports and updates to SIS accounts

If you have declared the COGS major you will have a academic report in SIS that shows all major requirements and if they have been fulfilled or not. COGS major SIS accounts will not show new, topical, or COGS approved courses that are not in the Record (catalog). If you have taken a new, topical, or course that is listed on the website under approved courses but not in the current Record--they must be entered individually by the program coordinator.

Because there are over 75 possible classes that may be missing from individual accounts--Spring 23 graduate accounts will be given priority for updating till mid February. If you are a first, second, or third year currently enrolled for SP 23 in one of these classes--SIS will not be updated until your grade is recieved.

If you need updates, please email cogsci@virginia.edu with needed updates and include:

1) Year of graduation and number/name/ and term you took the class

2) Where you think it should be populating in your AR (i.e. philosophy/psychology/linguistics/neuroscience/computer science core or concentration or elective)

Don't know how to see your AR?   Here is a link to the instructions from ITS for viewing/interpreting your SIS AR.

Requesting COGS meetings for information, course selection, or declaration assistance

The program coordinator will be posting weekly Zoom office hours on the COGS website. Her hours can be found on the "People" page
