College Transfer Pathway 

Who's Eligible?

To be eligible for enrollment, a high school student must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be a high school junior or senior;
  • Have a weighted GPA of 3.0 on high school courses;
  • Demonstrate college readiness on an approved assessment or placement test. A student must demonstrate college readiness in English, reading, and mathematics to be eligible for enrollment in a College Transfer Pathway. (Approved assessments/scores and tests/scores are at the bottom of this page.)

Beginning with the 2012 fall semester, a student who does not demonstrate college readiness on an approved assessment or test may be provisionally enrolled in a College Transfer Pathway.

To be eligible for provisional enrollment, a high school student must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be a high school junior or senior;
  • Have a cumulative weighted GPA of 3.5 on high school courses;
  • Have completed two years of high school English with a grade of "C" or higher in both English classes;
  • Have completed high school Algebra II (or a higher level math class) with a grade of "C" or higher;
  • Obtain the written approval for provisional enrollment from the high school principal or his/her designee; and
  • Obtain the written approval for provisional enrollment from the community college president or his/her designee.

NOTE:  A provisional student may register only for college mathematics (MAT) and college English (ENG) courses within the chosen Pathway.  To be eligible to register for other courses in the Pathway, the student must first successfully complete the mathematics and English courses in the chosen pathway with a grade of "C" or higher.

To maintain eligibility for continued enrollment, a student must:

  • Continue to make progress toward high school graduation, and
  • Maintain a 2.0 GPA in college coursework after completing two courses.

A student must enroll in one College Transfer Pathway and may not substitute courses in one pathway for courses in another.

A student may change his or her College Transfer Pathway with approval of the high school principal or his/her designee and the college's chief student development administrator.
