Transfer maps are major maps for community college students who plan on transferring to VCU. By following the advising and course recommendations of the transfer maps, students can:
· save money by completing community college classes that fulfill VCU’s general education and introductory-level major requirements;
· prepare for the academic challenges at VCU;
· identify financial resources to pay for college;
· graduate on time, with minimal debt and loss of transfer credit;
· and plan for a meaningful career after graduation.
Please let us know about your plan to follow a transfer map. Submit a Transfer Advising Request to the VCU Transfer Center so we can provide additional information and support.
We recommend that community college students follow the course plan of the transfer maps and complete the requirements of either the associate degree or the Uniform Certificate of General Studies before enrolling at VCU. By completing one of these credentials before enrolling at VCU, students may be eligible for guaranteed admission to the university and a waiver of VCU’s general education requirements.
The course recommendations in the transfer maps are based on students completing those courses at the community college. Use our course equivalency table to check how courses you’ve completed at other institutions will transfer to Virginia Commonwealth University. Virginia community colleges are listed under “VA Community College System.” VCU will evaluate credit awarded for other sources of prior learning credit - Advanced Placement (AP), Cambridge International Exams, College Level Examination Program (CLEP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and military credit - according to VCU's policy on Additional sources of academic credit.
