University of Virginia officials are making it possible for a wider range of students to attend UVa.

Starting now, students who earn an Associate's degree at a Virginia community college will be guaranteed admission to the University if they meet certain academic requirements, including a minimum 3.4 cumulative GPA.

The program is aimed at attracting students from all areas of Virginia, who may have thought they wouldn't qualify for admission or couldn't afford UVa.

"We're anxious to get community college students interested in UVa, and community college transfer issues are more regional, so we're hoping that we're able to attract students from just about everywhere -Southside, Tidewater, not just Northern Virginia and Piedmont," said UVa Associate Dean of Admission, Greg Roberts.

Those eligible must apply during the fall semester for the University's College of Arts and Sciences.
