Review of Dual Admissions Agreements and Programs in the Virginia Higher Education System
State Council of Higher Education for Virginia
The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) is gathering information about the extent to which dual admissions agreements and programs between two- and four-year institutions have been developed in the Commonwealth. This is in response to the State Transfer Module legislation passed in 2004 requiring that two- and four-year institutions develop dual admissions agreements and programs. A survey designed to ascertain the extent to which dual admissions agreements and programs have been developed was distributed to public four-year institutions in March 2010. The survey was developed by SCHEV staff with input from the Instructional Programs Advisory Committee (IPAC). The survey was distributed to the 15 Virginia public four-year institutions with 100% of institutions responding. Responses to the survey questions yielded information in the following areas: (1) Number of dual admissions agreements that exist in the Virginia higher education system; (2) Descriptions of existing agreements, including privileges extended to student participants, and requirements and obligations for students to participate in and remain in good standing in the program; (3) Challenges associated with establishing and maintaining dual admissions programs; and (4) Aspects of the agreements that have resulted in successes for student participants.
