The University of Mary Washington (UMW) and the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) today signed an agreement guaranteeing admission to UMW to students at any of Virginia’s community colleges who have earned a transfer-oriented associate degree and who meet certain other eligibility requirements. The intent of the agreement is to ease the transfer process for students who wish to complete a bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, bachelor of liberal studies or bachelor of professional studies degree at UMW. “I am so pleased that we have been able to develop this agreement,” said Dr. William J. Frawley, president of the University of Mary Washington. “It shows how UMW and the community colleges can be close partners in addressing regional and state educational needs in a direct and consequential way.”

“Our agreement with the University of Mary Washington is one more example of our commitment to ease transfer for students across the Commonwealth, providing them a gateway to the future through guaranteed admission agreements,” said Dr. Glenn DuBois, chancellor of the Virginia Community College System. “The University of Mary Washington is an important partner in providing this benefit statewide, and we look forward to working with them to boost opportunity for all Virginians and their families.”
