Eligibility and Fees

Piedmont Advantage is open to all recent high school graduates with priority consideration given to first-generation college students, students of color, and Pell Grant eligible students transitioning to PVCC. Participants will complete a five-week program, beginning June 27 and ending August 3, on the college's main campus in Charlottesville, Virginia. Piedmont Advantage is supported in part by the PVCC Educational Foundation, yet students may be required to pay a small participation fee.

·         Financial aid and grants are available to offset cost of attendance; participants must submit a FASFA form (see application for more information).

·         Applicants must apply to PVCC, complete the VPT for English and math, and submit a Piedmont Advantage application to be considered for the program.
