Certificate: General Education
This General Education Certificate is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university following their studies at Southside Virginia Community College. Students will receive a strong foundation in the core competency areas and gain an advantage in transferring to a four-year institution over others who have not completed a college program of study.
Students are urged to become acquainted with the requirements of the major department in the college or university to which transfer is being considered and also to consult with a counselor at that institution.
A high school diploma (or equivalent) and satisfactory scores on college placement tests (or equivalents) in English and mathematics are required. If students have deficiencies in English and/or mathematics, developmental courses are available to prepare students for the curriculum
