VCCS Course Recommendations / CNU Course Equivalent*   |  Richard Bland College / CNU Course Equivalent*
*Note: Currently enrolled CNU students must seek prior approval before enrolling in ANY classes off campus.*

CNU has developed articulation agreements for guaranteed admission with the Virginia Community College System (VCCS). Additional information regarding guaranteed admission may be obtained from your community college representative. 

Completion of a transfer-oriented (associate of arts, associate of science, or the associate of arts and sciences) degree from a Virginia community college will satisfy CNU lower-level liberal learning core requirements. This does not include other program or graduation prerequisite requirements.

If you have been offered admission to CNU and have completed a university parallel program (associate of arts, associate of science, or the associate of arts and sciences) at a VCCS college or Richard Bland College, you should anticipate the following:

  • Courses, with a grade of 'C' or better, that have a CNU equivalent will transfer
  • Courses completed in the VCCS with a grade of 'C-' or lower will not transfer to CNU and must be repeated if it is a required course for your major at CNU
  • No more than 66 semester hours will transfer to CNU from a two-year college or university
  • To receive junior-level class standing, if you present at least 60 hours of college-level credit (not developmental or remedial course work)
  • Completion of all lower-level liberal learning core requirements, excluding graduation requirements, upper-level requirements and concentration / minor / major requirements
  • To complete concentration (if applicable), minor and major requirements in effect at CNU at the time of the student's first term of enrollment at CNU

Entrance into CNU majors or fields of study is competitive. Acceptance into the University does not imply admission to these programs. Transfer students and currently enrolled CNU students are treated identically with regard to admission to competitive programs.
