Transfer Students


We welcome transfer students from community college and four-year partner institutions each year. With our team of committed faculty and staff across VCU, we want to help make the transfer process easy and seamless as you start your future VCU program. Each student transferring to VCU has a different academic background and experience. We are here to learn more about you and help connect you to resources as you become a future Ram!

Entering a Graduate Program

Transferring into a Non-School of Education Program with Master’s Degree Goals
Students interested in secondary teaching careers should review the M.T. concentration pre-requisite guidelines to identify a program that best fits your future career goal. For example, if you are interested in teaching English in a secondary level, you likely will want to apply to the English program at VCU. As you apply, if you have questions about what program makes sense for your future M.T. program, email to set up an appointment with our team and complete the transfer credit request form and include all unofficial transcripts from all institutions attended for our licensure team and faculty coordinator for that concentration to review options for your unique case.

Note: For students interested in any other graduate education program including special education, counseling, adult learning, or educational leadership program, we accept students across disciplines. If you have questions about a program that will help you prepare for these graduate programs, please contact us.

Completed Your Bachelors and Preparing for a Graduate Program
If you have completed your bachelor’s degree at either another institution or VCU and are looking at your pathway to teaching, we are happy to support your path! Please feel free to email with all of your past transcripts from all institutions attended with a note as to what M.T. concentration (subject area that you want to teach), you are hoping to apply. We will help you determine next steps, identify possible prerequisite courses and tests, and support you through the steps for a successful Teacher Prep application. If you are interested in our RTR residency program, please email your transcripts to for review as well.
