Transfer Opportunities

You can earn an associate degree at PVCC and then transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor's degree if you meet transfer grade and credit requirements. You can also take classes at PVCC without pursuing a degree and then transfer. We have Guaranteed Admission Agreements with most colleges and universities in Virginia. PVCC also partners with Mary Baldwin, Old Dominion and the University of Virginia, each of which offers bachelor’s degree transfer programs designed especially for adult students who want to continue their education in the Charlottesville area. More details here.
