Transfer Programs

Each of the transfer programs listed is intended for the student who wishes to pursue a baccalaureate degree at a four-year college or university. Required courses in written and oral communication, humanities, natural sciences, mathematics, history, social sciences, and health and physical education will meet most of the general education requirements of the first two years at a four-year college or university.

Students who intend to transfer should acquaint themselves with the requirements of their prospective college or university. Germanna maintains a collection of current catalogs for Virginia Colleges in the Counseling offices. Faculty advisors and counselors can also provide advice. However, it is the responsibility of each student to determine the specific courses that he or she will need to transfer into specific departments or programs at specific four-year colleges or universities.
