Students must have a minimum 2.500 cumulative grade-point average in order to study elsewhere under this program. See the Exchange Agreement for details.
The Rockbridge Teacher Education Consortium (RTEC) is a cooperative effort led by Washington and Lee and including Southern Virginia University (SVU), through which students from W&L may take upper-level teacher-education classes at each institution. The purpose of this arrangement is to maximize the use of our respective teaching resources while offering the greatest amount of diversity in educational opportunity to our students. See the Exchange Agreement for details.
The Virginia Military Institute is located next door to W&L, and allows students to take courses in various academic disciplines including teacher education that are not offered on a regular basis at W&L. Students must have a minimum 2.500 cumulative grade-point average in order to study elsewhere under this program. See the Exchange Agreement for details.
