Each fall, we typically enroll 300 students from the Virginia Community College System and other schools, both from inside and outside Virginia, into UMW’s bachelors of arts and sciences programs. The average GPA for admitted transfer students in fall 2021 was 3.31.
Students can also choose a non-degree enrollment program, allowing non-degree-seeking students to take classes when space is available.
