Transfer is a two-step process:


Identify colleges and programs you may be interested in.


Talk to a community college counselor or advisor to develop a path to get there.

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 30 of the commonwealth's colleges and universities.

In addition, individual colleges have even more transfer agreements to choose from, so check with your college guidance office, or check them out on the Virginia Education Wizard.

The Guaranteed Admissions Agreements between Virginia's community colleges and four-year colleges and universities are available in .pdf format in the table below.
