PDA Requirements

Appropriate attire and full participation is required at all PDAs. The Director of the Wall Center for Excellence or faculty member designated to supervise the activity determines if a student has fully participated in the PDA.

All Professional Development Activities (PDAs) for each semester, and appropriate certificate designations, must be approved by the Wall Center for Excellence programming committee and published on the Wall Center for Excellence webpage prior to the start of each semester. A list of these approved activities is provided to the Office of the Registrar. Student participation in the PDAs is recorded by the Wall Center for Excellence in the career services management information system and reported at the conclusion of the semester to the Office of the Registrar. Participation in PDAs is listed on the student’s transcript and program evaluation, but reflects zero (0) credit hours being earned for the activity. Students may request that alternative activities or events be included as a PDA by petitioning the Wall Center for Excellence showing relevance of the activity/event.

It is ultimately each student’s responsibility to ensure that a minimum of nine (9) Professional Development Activities (PDAs) are completed prior to graduation. Consequently, students must ensure that participation in the PDAs is accurately recorded on their academic record. If a student’s record does not reflect participation in a specific PDA, the student must bring the matter to the attention of the Wall Center for Excellence by the end of the semester following the activity in question. Any disputes relative to a student’s participation will be addressed by the Wall Center for Excellence programming committee or appealed to the Dean of the College.

FINAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR SATISFYING DEGREE REQUIREMENTS, AS OUTLINED IN THE UNIVERSITY CATALOG, RESTS WITH THE STUDENT.

For more information regarding PDAs, contact the Wall Center at 843-349-4187 or wallcnter@coastal.edu.
