Overview of Transfer Pathways
 Students graduating with a two-year
transfer-oriented associate degree
program.
 Students completing a one-year General
Education Certificate.
 Transfer articulation agreements for
specific degree programs.
Key Transfer Terms
“Guaranteed Admissions Agreement (GAA)”
 GAA is an agreement that guarantees general admission
to VCU for VCCS students who complete a two-year
transfer-oriented Associates degree with a minimum GPA
of 2.5.

programs (e.g., art, engineering, health science programs).
Careful selection of VCCS courses will result in the completion of the university core education and
lower-level general education requirements for VCU degree programs

Key Transfer Terms
“Articulation Agreements”

Articulation agreements are agreements between individual
community colleges and specific VCU schools or programs.
The agreements exist to provide extra guidance on what
courses students should take at the transfer institution in
order to facilitate a successful transition to VCU. Upon the
completion of all requirements that are dictated in these
agreements (including GPA expectations), students are
guaranteed admission to VCU.
Key Transfer Terms

Guaranteed Admission Agreement
