Lower Division General Education Goals With VCCS And RBC Equivalents

Remember, if you earn an Associate of Arts and/or Sciences Degree and are admitted to Longwood, you will automatically meet all Lower Division General Education Goals, enter with junior status, and all of your credits earned for that degree will transfer.

Students transferring from other schools should plan an academic program as close as possible to these required goals.

Students should be aware that some majors require specific courses to meet general education goals so they should refer to the Longwood Catalog.
