Guaranteed Transfer

Tidewater Community College has guaranteed admission agreements with tons of public and private colleges and universities including Virginia Tech, University of Virginia, Old Dominion University, Norfolk State University and more! Just take the right classes, get the grades, complete the transfer process — and you’re in!

Here are a few of TCC’s guaranteed transfer partners.


Do the math. You’ll save thousands by starting at TCC and taking advantage of guaranteed transfer to a 4-year school. And you’ll save on tuition, not to mention things like room and board. That’s why so many students are choosing TCC as their first stop on the way to their ultimate “anywhere.”

Score a priceless education, without the hefty price tag. Our transfer counselors are here to help you every step of the way. And we offer financial aid opportunities like the Two-Year College Transfer Grant, which awards up to $2,000 in tuition assistance.

See how a 2-year guaranteed transfer path measures up with an otherwise costly 4-year track!

* Cost savings are calculated based on 2020-21 full-time, in-state tuition and fees. Room and board and textbook charges are not included.


Getting turned down or wait-listed by your first-choice school can be rough. But don’t abandon your hopes of graduating from that dream school. Put in the work at TCC for 2 years (and sometimes less), and go pretty much anywhere in Virginia.


In addition to guaranteed transfer admission agreements, TCC partners with dozens of colleges and universities to offer specific transfer agreements.

These agreements generally provide specific course-by-course equivalents for specific programs at a four-year college or university.

Articulation agreements ensure that all the credits you earn at TCC will transfer to your preferred college or university program.
