Local Community College Makes Transition To 4 Year Programs Easier

Students at Lord Fairfax Community College now have more options for a smooth transition to a Bachelor’s Degree because of recently signed agreements between the College and two Virginia universities.   First, graduates of LFCC’s nursing program who have earned the Registered Nurse license and meets required criteria could complete a Bachelors of Science in Nursing with James Madison University in three semesters going full-time and in five semesters going part-time.   Second, students with a 2.0 GPA and at least a C average in all transfer classes will be by Virginia International University (VIU) in Fairfax, VA at junior standing.   VIU offers degree programs in computer science and business management fields.

“These two new agreements provide even more options for our students,” stated Brenda Byard, Associate Dean of Business and Technologies for   LFCC’s Middletown Campus.   “It is important that current and potential students are aware how their work at LFCC can transfer for a more advanced degree, should they desire it.”

LFCC currently had articulation agreements with 47 colleges and universities in Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.   These agreements assist students with ease of transition between LFCC and four-year institutions such as Shenandoah University, Shepherd University, George Mason University, James Madison University, Art Institute of Washington, University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, Virginia Commonwealth University, Bluefield College, and Christopher Newport University.
