Sweet Briar makes it easy to transfer.
We guarantee automatic admission to students graduating from a Virginia community college, with a cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher, with a transfer-oriented degree.
Your degree will replace Sweet Briar’s required leadership core curriculum — the College’s version of traditional general education requirements — setting you up to dive right into coursework that fulfills requirements for your major.
Even if you haven’t completed your community college degree, it’s still easy to transfer to Sweet Briar.
