Passport Courses


PASSPORT COURSES

The Passport is a collection of courses in which all courses are transferable and satisfy lower-division general education requirements at any Virginia public institution of higher education.  The Passport consists of course blocks assigned specific courses. To satisfy the Passport students are required to complete the appropriate number of courses in each course block per the directions below.  Student course selection should be carefully considered since the Passport is not designed to capture the complexities of individual programs of study at the four-year institutions.  Students should be advised to take the Passport that best suits their intended program of study at the four-year institution. The Passport Course Roster is below. A grade of ‘C’ or better is required on all coursework for students to obtain the passport milestone.
