CMDA Major Requirements
Checksheets list the requirements a student must fulfill in order to obtain a degree in their intended major and degree program. On these you will find required courses, GPA requirements, and more. Below are the CMDA checksheets without an option. To view checksheets for a specific CMDA option, please visit the Registrar’s Checksheet page.
Beginning with students entering in the 2020-2021 academic year, checksheets will switch from being based on a student’s graduation year to being based on when a student started at Virginia Tech. As such, the checksheets below reflect the year students entered.
To support the university transition for Undergraduate students from Date of Graduation (DOG) to Date of Entry (DOE) graduation requirements, any student who has not graduated by 2022 will be transitioned to the 2021-2022 catalog program graduation requirements. For example, students who entered during the academic year 2019-2020 will follow the 2021-2022 undergraduate catalog checksheet requirements under the Date of Entry (DOE) requirements.
Flowcharts of coursework are a more visually appealing way to visualize your coursework during your time at Virginia Tech in CMDA. Below are flowcharts for each of our CMDA options.
