Guaranteed Admission Agreements with Virginia Community College System (VCCS)
Bridgewater College currently has Guaranteed Admission Agreements with three of the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) institutions – Blue Ridge Community College in Weyers Cave, Germanna Community College in Locust Grove and Fredericksburg, and Dabney S. Lancaster Community College in Clifton Forge. Bridgewater also has an agreement with the (non-VCCS) Richard Bland College of the College of William and Mary in Petersburg.
These agreements allow students who meet certain criteria to transfer directly from the community colleges into Bridgewater's bachelor's degree program. Students enrolled in the Associate of Arts and Sciences Degree Program in the College Transfer Program will work closely with a transfer coordinator at Bridgewater and BRCC/GCC/DLCC to select appropriate courses. By doing so, the students will meet most of the general education requirements at Bridgewater College before they transfer.
Among the conditions of the agreements, students will be required to maintain an overall grade point average of no less than 2.5 and will sign a "Letter of Intent to Enroll at Bridgewater College." The application for admission fee will be waived for students who have signed the letter of intent. Acceptance to Bridgewater through the Guaranteed Admission Agreement does not ensure acceptance into a specific major.
Please contact the transfer counselor at Bridgewater College and the transfer counselor at your community college for additional information about the articulation agreements.
