About Pathway to the Baccalaureate
The Pathway to the Baccalaureate Program increases access to higher education for selected, underrepresented students from participating Northern Virginia high schools. The program is designed to serve students who have both the motivation and capacity to earn a bachelor’s degree.
The Pathway Program provides multifaceted, individualized support during the transition from high school to Northern Virginia Community College, and the transfer to George Mason University or another institution of the student’s choice.

Message From the Former President
“If we’re going to be competitive globally we need a greater percentage of people going to college. It just so happens the majority of the people coming down the pipeline do not have a college-going tradition.”
Robert Templin Jr.
Former NOVA President
