STUDENT DEVELOPMENT (SDV)

Student Development Courses are taught by counselors, faculty, staff, and administrators at the college who are committed to student success, learning, and overall wellness.

 

Types of SDV Courses

 

Tidewater Community College offers two types of SDV courses: generic and discipline -specific.

The generic SDV courses include SDV 100, 104, 106, 107, and 108, of which SDV 100 is the most frequently offered. The generic SDV courses focus on student success in college. To teach a generic SDV course at TCC requires a minimum of a bachelor’s degree with master’s degree preferred and with preference given to those with degrees in counseling, student affairs, and student personnel services.

 

 

The discipline-specific SDV courses include SDV 101 and 105. The discipline-specific SDV courses requires a different level of competency since they address more specific skills in addition to the study skills taught in the generic courses, e.g., introduction to a specific program area which requires the instructor to have work-related experiences and/or higher educational requirements to instruct in the course. To teach a discipline-specific SDV course at TCC requires a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and appropriate documented work experience in the field, or a master’s degree preferred in a related field or in counseling, student affairs, and student personnel services.

NOTE: Only SDV 100, 101, and 108 can be used to satisfy the VCCS SDV distribution requirement per VCCS Policy Section 6.4.0.3.
