« Back to Transfer agreements

This form is for Virginia Community College System students who anticipate transferring to VCU under the Guaranteed Admission Agreement. [PDF]

Students must meet the following eligibility requirements to apply:

  • Earn a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA
  • Earn a minimum of 15 transferable credits
  • Submit a letter of interest 90 or more days before graduating from a VCCS institution
  • Complete a VCCS transfer-oriented associate degree or general education certificate
  • Earn a minimum grade of C or higher in each VCCS course applicable to your certificate or associate degree
  • Earn a minimum of 30 credits of the total required for a transfer-oriented associate degree from a VCCS institution
  • Enroll at VCU within one year of completing a general education certificate or transfer-oriented associate degree
  • Apply for transfer admission by VCU’s transfer application deadline

Applicants are ineligible for guaranteed admission if they:

  • Completed a general education certificate through high school dual enrollment
  • Enrolled at VCU then transferred to a VCCS college to complete a transfer-oriented associate degree

I acknowledge that:

  • GAA admission is contingent upon receipt of a final official transcript reflecting the award of my transfer-oriented associate degree or general education certificate with the required GPA.
  • Guaranteed admission into VCU does not imply admission to any particular degree program.
  • Only grades of C or higher will be considered for transfer.
  • Transfer applicants who do not meet all of the requirements for GAA admission may be considered for regular transfer admission.

Note: VCU reserves the right to deny admission to students who have felony convictions or suspensions from previous educational institutions.
