For thousands of Virginians, community college is the spark that ignites a lifelong passion for learning and growth.

In 2016, more than 26,000 students earned graduation credentials from Virginia’s Community Colleges. Of these, a significant number moved on to bachelor’s programs at one of the state’s four-year colleges or universities thanks to Guaranteed Admissions Agreements.

Working hand in hand with Virginia’s 23 Community Colleges, the Virginia Foundation for Community College Education seeks to guarantee financial assistance to all students who dream of attending college.
