To learn more about our transfer degree programs, go to http://7l8nf.garrycolby.com/transfer-programs/.  A Transfer Planner is available on the Virginia Education Wizard which will provide information on Transfer Agreements, Guaranteed Admissions Agreements and the appropriate steps to prepare for transfer.  Details of the VCCS Transfer Grant are also included. 

Also, Transfer Virginia provides transparency and access throughout the college transfer process for Virginia state colleges and universities.

Transfer Virginia: Your credits. Your degree. Your move.

Through agreements with the Virginia Community College System, students who graduate from WCC with a transfer degree and a minimum grade point average may obtain guaranteed admission to more than 30 of Virginia’s colleges and universities.  For a listing of participating colleges and universities go to http://7l8nf.garrycolby.com/transfer-programs/.

Admission requirements are unique for each of Wytheville Community College’s Health Professions programs. In addition to submitting the official application for college admission, you must also complete the online Health Professions Application, and complete ALL admission requirements for your intended program of study.

The program is available through a partnership with Southwest Virginia Community College.  For more information on how to apply to these programs, please contact a WCC Advisor.  

WCC encourages students to pursue their academic goals at whatever pace will allow them to excel, while at the same time balancing their education with work and personal responsibilities.  In most degree programs, a student may take as little as one course a semester.  However, there are some programs, such as the Health Profession programs, which require that students complete the degree in the time frame and semester sequence listed in the course catalog.  Some “Guaranteed Admissions Transfer Agreements” to specific colleges require students to complete their transfer associate degree within two years.

It is strongly recommended that students meet with their faculty advisor about academic planning before registering for courses each semester.  When deciding which course(s) to take next, it is important to read the course description in the back of the college catalog to see if the course has any prerequisites.  If not, then it is often acceptable to take a course out of sequence.  

Electives in Social Science, Health/PE, Public Speaking, and Humanities are examples of courses that may be taken in any term.  However, be aware of the degree-specific courses listed under each semester of the degree program, as these courses have been placed in this order by the faculty.  Therefore, while there may not be a prerequisite for a particular course, it is often to the student’s advantage to take certain courses in the order listed.  Some degree-specific courses are only offered in either the Fall or the Spring semester, but not both.
