Student Services - Admission of Transfer Students

Catalog and Student Handbook

Normally, transfer students who are eligible for reentrance at the last college of attendance are also eligible for admission to Germanna Community College. Transfer students who are ineligible to return to a particular curriculum in a previous college generally may not be allowed to enroll in the same curriculum in the community college until one semester elapses or until an approved program at the college is completed. The admissions committee of the college shall decide on each case and can impose special conditions for the admittance of such students. Students transferring from another college or university should consult the Admissions and Records Office for an evaluation of transfer credit in order to determine their standing before registering for classes. Official transfer credit evaluations will be completed when all official transcripts and a Request for Evaluation of Transfer Credit form are received by the Admissions and Records Office. Coursework transferred to Germanna Community College must represent collegiate coursework applicable to the student’s curriculum, with course content and level of instruction resulting in student competencies at least equivalent to those of students enrolled in Germanna’s curricula. Collegiate coursework from regionally accredited institutions typically meets the above criteria. No credit will be given for courses with grades lower than "C." Any VCCS course in which a student received a grade of "C" or better will transfer as the same course at any other college in the VCCS. Grade point averages from prior institutions will not be transferred. Transfer students may be advised to repeat courses if it would clearly be advantageous to their curriculum advancement.
