Applicants are ineligible for guaranteed admission if they:

I acknowledge that:

  • GAA admission is contingent upon receipt of a final official transcript reflecting the award of my transfer-oriented associate degree or general education certificate with the required GPA.
  • Guaranteed admission into VCU does not imply admission to any particular degree program.
  • Only grades of C or higher will be considered for transfer.
  • Transfer applicants who do not meet all of the requirements for GAA admission may be considered for regular transfer admission.
