In addition to the general admission requirements listed above, specific requirements are usually prescribed for each curriculum of the College. Among the items generally considered in determining the eligibility of a student for admission to a curriculum in the College are educational and occupational experiences, and other reasonable standards to ensure that the student possesses the potential to meet program requirements. The specific requirements for each curriculum are listed in the curricular offerings section of the College Catalog. Persons who do not meet the requirements for a specific curriculum or course may be eligible to enter the curriculum or course after they have completed appropriate courses in developmental studies. Persons applying for admission to an associate degree (Associate in Arts and Sciences or Associate in Applied Science) program shall be a high school graduate or the equivalent or have completed a prescribed Developmental Studies Program.
When enrollments must be limited for any curriculum, priority shall be given to all qualified applicants who are residents of the political subdivisions supporting the College and to Virginia residents not having access to a given program at their local community college, provided such students apply for admission to the program prior to registration or by a deadline established by the college. In addition, residents of localities with which the college has clinical-site or other agreements may receive equal consideration for admission.
