Enrollment Process for Transfer Students
Virginia Union University (VUU) students having earned college credits after high school graduation are classified as transfer applicants. We have established a Guaranteed Admission Agreement (GAA) between Virginia Union University and Virginia Community College System (VCCS). If you are transferring from a non-VCCS school, please proceed with the application process in conjunction with the standard application requirements.

Transfer Application Process
2. GPA requirement (2.0 or higher)
3. Official transcript of ALL colleges and universities
4. Official final high school transcript or GED scores
5. SAT (Code 5862) or ACT (Code 4428) scores
6. Personal Statement
GAA students are guaranteed admission to VUU and may expect the following:
VUU will guarantee the acceptance of all transferable credits earned from the transfer-oriented associate degree program, not to exceed 63 credits. No distinction will be made by VUU regarding college courses applicable to the transfer-oriented associate degree that are taken through dual enrollment arrangements with high schools.
Credits earned at accredited institutions other than Virginia’s Community Colleges to satisfy the transfer-oriented associate degree will be treated on an equal basis as credits earned from Virginia’s Community Colleges. Advanced standing for courses completed through International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, CLEP, and Armed Services experience is an institutional decision and will be evaluated by the Registrar’s Office on a case-by-case basis.
Completion of the transfer-oriented degree program will guarantee completion of the VUU general education component of the undergraduate curriculum. Guaranteed admissions into VUU does not imply admission to these programs without further acceptance by the program or department offering the program.
Students who were previously enrolled at VUU and transferred back to a VCCS college to complete the transfer-oriented associate degree are not eligible for participation in the GAA. VCCS students who do not meet the GAA eligibility requirements listed above are eligible to apply for admission to VUU but will not be guaranteed admission under this agreement.
Benefits to Virginia Community College Students
VUU waives its application fee, provided all application materials are submitted by July 1 for fall term enrollment and November 15 for spring term enrollment.
GAA students enrolling in VUU are eligible to apply for the Incentive Grant. The Incentive Grant is a one-time award reserved for first-time incoming students. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher, and be enrolled in 12 or more semester hours at the community college at the time application to VUU is made. Also, students must have official transcripts on file in the Office of Enrollment Management.
