Featured Blog Post

VCCSBlog

With this new year comes a new blog presence for Virginia’s Community Colleges, a place where we will share the stories, expertise and people that make the community college experience real. We’ll start out by sharing news from the legislative session of the 2014 General Assembly. And we’ll highlight the stories of students who participate in “Every Day is Community College Day,” students who share why community colleges are such an important resource to all families in the commonwealth.

Within the next few weeks we’ll add new features as well, including stories that focus on how Virginia’s Community Colleges impact and support the workforce environment in the state, the powerful impact the transfer process can have on those new to the community college environment, and how Virginia’s Community Colleges continue to transform themselves to even better meet the commonwealth’s needs.

  • Completion of the transfer-oriented degree program will guarantee completion of the UVa-Wise general education component of the first two years of the undergraduate curriculum, provided the GAA student completes six semester hours of credit in a single foreign language as part of the transfer-oriented associate’s degree. If the foreign language requirement was not met in this manner, the GAA student must fulfill the requirement prior to graduation from UVA-Wise; however, the failure to complete the foreign language requirement as a part of the associate-degree requirement will not preclude the GAA student from entering UVA-Wise under the terms of the Guaranteed Admission Agreement. Acceptance in some degree programs at UVA-Wise is competitive; thus guaranteed admission into UVA-Wise does not imply admission to these programs without further acceptance by the program or department offering the program.
