Transferring to PHCC
Students transferring to PHCC should contact the Center for New Students for academic advising and registration in Walker Fine Arts/Student Center Room 228; 276-656-0311.
Credits from similarly accredited institutions are usually accepted. Credits earned at institutions not accredited can be evaluated for possible transfer based on information such as course content, texts, evaluation methods, and faculty credentials. Students must submit an official transcript from previous institutions for evaluation. No credit is given for courses with grades lower than a ”C.”
Students with educational credentials from foreign countries must have a credit evaluation provided to the admissions office from a college-approved foreign credential evaluation service.
Transferring from PHCC
Many Virginia colleges and universities have articulation agreements which guarantees admission for graduates from PHCC or another Virginia community college with an associate degree and a minimum grade point average. To learn more, visit the Virginia Community College System website. Students planning to transfer from PHCC should work with their PHCC academic advisor to create a seamless transition to the four year school of their choice.
The Virginia Education Wizard helps students explore careers, find college majors that match career interests, estimate and compare college costs, find and apply for financial aid and scholarships, and plan their transfer from community colleges to four‐year institutions.
Students wishing to transfer to a school that does not have an articulation agreement or before earning an associate degree should visit the specific institutions website and view their Transfer Guide to compare courses taken at the community college to those which are given credit at the receiving institutions. These guides are updated frequently by the 4-year schools, and should be referred to often to verify the accuracy and equivalencies of a particular course.
Several trips are planned for students to tour campuses throughout the year, typically in October and April. For more information, contact Jennifer Hollyfield (276-656-0306; ).
Many campuses attend a transfer fair in the fall – this year’s is scheduled for September 12th.
