Virginia Community College students who have completed an engineering Associate Degree and have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (with minimum grades of "B" or better in all engineering, math and science courses) at the time of Associate Degree completion are guaranteed admission to General Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Admission to a specific department is subject to space availability and specific departmental entrance requirements. Eligible students will be admitted to alternate engineering majors if the first choice of major is not available. See Virginia Tech Articulation Agreement.

* EGR 246 Mechanics of Materials (3 cr.) OR
* EGR 248 Thermodynamics for Engineering (3 cr.)
* These courses are not required for the AA&S degree; however, completion may be desirable for transfer as a junior in Engineering. Students should consult requirements of the specific program at the transfer institution.
1 Humanities electives include the following: ART 100, ENG 241-242, ENG 243-244, ENG 251-252, MUS 121-122, PHI 100, REL 230.
2 Social Science courses include the following: ECO (excluding ECO 120), GEO, PLS, HIS, PSY (excluding PSY 120), or SOC. Virginia Tech may recommend ECO 201-202; students should consult the specific requirements of the specific program at the transfer institution.
Students should consult the requirements of the specific program at the transfer institution. Only six semester hours of social/behavioral sciences are required for engineering majors who plan to transfer to a baccalaureate degree engineering program that requires 6 or fewer hours in the category, provided that the college/university publishes such requirements in its transfer guide. The articulation agreement with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University supports admission to the College of Engineering for all students who graduate from this program with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
