Virginia Community College System

Tuition & Fees: Community College compared to 4-year Institutions.

Guaranteed Admissions Agreements

Virginia’s community colleges offer students more than the opportunity to earn a degree or certificate. They provide a gateway to the commonwealth’s four-year colleges and universities.
Through system-wide agreements, students who graduate from one of Virginia's 23 community colleges with an associate's degree and a minimum grade point average may obtain GUARANTEED admission to more than 20 of the commonwealth's colleges and universities.

How to Prepare to Transfer: It's Never Too Early!
Students are encouraged to contact the office of admissions and the individual departments at the 4-year college/university to which they are transferring.  Departmental requirements may differ from regular admission requirements.
