Engineering

Virginia Community College students who have completed an engineering Associate Degree and have a cumulative GPA of 3.2 at the time of Associate Degree completion are guaranteed admission to General Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Admission to a specific department is subject to space availability and specific departmental entrance requirements. Eligible students will be admitted to alternate engineering majors if the first choice of major is not available. See Virginia Tech Articulation Agreement.

* These courses are not required for the AA&S degree; however, completion may be desirable for transfer as a junior in Engineering. Students should consult requirements of the specific program at the transfer institution.

Footnote:
1 Students may choose from college approved Humanities/Fine Arts electives.
2 Social Science courses include the following: ECO (excluding ECO 120), GEO, PLS, HIS, PSY (excluding PSY 120), or SOC. Virginia Tech may recommend ECO 201-202; students should consult the specific requirements of the specific program at the transfer institution.

Note:
Students should consult the requirements of the specific program at the transfer institution. Only six semester hours of social/behavioral sciences are required for engineering majors who plan to transfer to a baccalaureate degree engineering program that requires 6 or fewer hours in the category, provided that the college/university publishes such requirements in its transfer guide. The articulation agreement with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University supports admission to the College of Engineering for all students who graduate from this program with a cumulative GPA of  3.2 at the time of Associate degree completion.  All course grades on the VCCS transcript, including repeating classes, may be used to calculate the overall GPA prior to degree being conferred.  Admission to a specific department is subject to space availability and specific departmental  entrance requirements.  Eligible students will be admitted to alternate engineering majors if the first choice of major is not available.
