School(s): Access to Community College Education

A public/private partnership in Virginia is making a promise that students from the surrounding counties of New River Community College (NRCC) can go to school debt-free. The economic development program, Access to Community College Education (ACCE), allows local high school graduates to attend NRCC tuition-free for two years. To qualify for ACCE, students must first complete the FAFSA and have at least a 2.5 GPA. Once in the program, students must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA and complete a College Success Skills course in their first semester. The above information is taken from the program’s website.
