Your Credits. Your Degree. Your Move.
Why do so many students choose to start at Southwest Virginia Community College before transferring into a bachelor’s degree program?
- You’ll earn high-quality transfer credits that are widely accepted. As an accredited community college, Southwest Virginia meets the same academic standards as four-year schools.
- You’ll get personalized advising and support. Your assigned academic adviser will help you map out the courses you’ll need to take before transferring. We’ll also help you contact the transfer school you wish to attend, guide you through the paperwork, and help you make financial plans.
- You’ll earn credits affordably and conveniently. SWCC charges lower tuition and fees than most four-year schools. By staying close to home while you earn your first two years’ worth of credits, you can save on housing, meals, and other expenses.
- You’ll get direct attention and support from our faculty. Our instructors devote all their time to students. They’re not distracted by big research projects, publications, grant writing, or other initiatives. You’ll attend small classes taught by senior faculty who care about your success, and you’ll never have to compete for their attention
- Guaranteed Admission Agreements Make It Easy to Transfer Credits. Under SWCC’s Guaranteed Admission agreements, your credits transfer easily to more than 30 colleges and universities in Virginia. Most private and out-of-state colleges accept our transfer credits, too, so you can continue your education almost anywhere.
