State Policy On Transfer

[ NVCC Home Page | Catalog Search | Table of Contents | Previous Page | Next Page ]

    The Virginia State Policy on Transfer lists general education courses that transfer to the majority of public four-year degree granting institutions in Virginia. These courses are referred to as the "transfer module." Many other NVCC courses also transfer to these institutions. Some Virginia colleges and universities will grant special status to students who have completed 35 hours from the Transfer Module. If you plan to transfer prior to completing an A.A. or an A.S. degree, you should consider completing courses from the following list. Also, students completing an A.A.A. or A.A.S. degree may benefit from selecting courses from the Transfer Module if their long-term goal is to complete a four-year degree program.
