Guaranteed Transfer

Virginia's community colleges are where opportunity begins......
Where will it take YOU?

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.
