Transitional Programs

Adult Education

For adults 18 and older who want to improve their basic skills, attain employment readiness skills, or earn a GED/High School Equivalency or high school diploma. Classes are offered at NRCC’s Dublin and NRV Mall campuses and at adult learning centers in Floyd, Giles, Pulaski, and Radford. NRCC serves as the regional provider of Adult Education services in the New River Valley and is an official GED Testing Center.

Middle College

For young adults ages 16 – 24 who desire to increase college and career readiness. Middle College programs help students improve core academic skills, complete a high school diploma or GED/High School Equivalency and develop workforce skills and general life skills.

Great Expectations

Great Expectations offers educational and supportive services to current and former foster youth ages 16 to 24. Young adults in the Great Expectations Program develop a career plan and transition to postsecondary training with the support of the Great Expectations Coach.

On Ramp

On Ramp increases employment opportunities for dislocated workers through postsecondary credentials for in-demand careers. These non-credit training programs are shorter in length than NRCC’s credit programs and have flexible start times.
