Transfer Admission

VCCS Advising Supplements

Transfer counselors play a vital role in preparing Virginia community college students for a smooth transition to Christopher Newport. The information below may be helpful as you speak with your students about their plans for future study. Please keep in mind that these sheets are designed to complement your personal advising sessions with students, and the information is subject to change.

What courses should Virginia community college students take?

We encourage prospective students from the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) to review the following program planning sheets* with a transfer counselor at their home institution. The planning sheets are designed to assist community college students in choosing courses that will not only transfer to Christopher Newport, but simultaneously satisfy the Liberal Learning Core Curriculum, while also progressing them toward graduation in their area of academic interest.

Specific degree requirements for each major can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog. Please note that these courses and planning sheets are subject to change.

What about Pre-Medicine and Pre-Health Programs?

The Pre-Med and Pre-Health programs at Christopher Newport are designed to prepare students for future study in medical and other health professions. Students cannot major in pre-medicine or pre-health; instead they will choose an academic major with their core adviser (e.g., biology), and take suggested courses through their pre-health program to successfully prepare them for their future plans.

The pre-health program planning sheets* below should be used in tandem with an academic major planning sheet from the above list.
