Guaranteed Admission Agreement

Virginia Community College System Guaranteed Admission Agreement

If you attend a Virginia Community College System (VCCS) school, are pursuing a transfer-oriented associate degree, and have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 or higher, you may be eligible for the Guaranteed Admission Agreement (GAA).

To enroll under this agreement, students must complete all of their required transfer-oriented associate degree credits (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, College-Level Examination Program, and Cambridge credits are permissible) at the VCCS. Transfer-oriented associate degrees include Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), and Associate ofArts & Sciences (AA&S) degrees identified by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) asuniversity-parallel transfer degrees. Students are required to have at least one semester (fall/spring) with full-time enrollment (min. 12 credit hours) at the VCCS. Students who have earned or are planning on earning a transfer associate degree with any non-VCCS institutional credit must apply through the regular admission process. Students who were previously enrolled at Christopher Newport and who transferred to a VCCS college to complete the transfer-oriented associate degree are not eligible to participate in this GAA.

Students are required to declare their intent to transfer to Christopher Newport under this GAA after they have earned at least 15 credits toward the transfer-oriented associate degree and prior to graduation from the VCCS college. A letter of intent must be turned in to The Transfer Center and can be found on the Transfer Virginia Portal and on Christopher Newport’s admission website. Students must maintain continuous enrollment in all non-summer terms from the point of registering their intent totransfer until the associate degree has been conferred. Students must transfer to Christopher Newport in the semester designated on the Registration of Intent to Transfer.

Students seeking admission under the GAA must formally complete the transfer admission application and process, meeting deadlines and requirements as detailed on Christopher Newport's transfer admission website.
