Program Plans (curriculum/non-curriculum) - Central Virginia Community College

Program Plans (curriculum/non-curriculum)

What is a program plan?

A program is the subject area in which you hope to get a degree, diploma, or certificate. It is often the name of the occupation you will be seeking employment in, but it can also be a more general and cover an entire field.

What is the difference between being a program or non-program student?

  • If you are not enrolled in a program plan (curriculum): it means that at this point in time you are coming to CVCC for personal enrichment or to remediate basic skills or just to pick up a class or two. You are not pursuing a career or planning on transferring to a four-year school.
  • If you are enrolled in a program plan (curriculum): it means you have come to CVCC with a purpose beyond just taking classes here. You may be planning to transfer to another college, change careers, upgrade your career, or pursue a specific occupational career program.

NOTE: If your application for admission form does not indicate a program plan you will be entered into the system as a non-program plan (non-curricular) student.

NOTE: If you are receiving financial aid you must be enrolled in a program plan (curriculum). You may be a full-time or part-time student with either choice.

Program Plans - Please select a major from this list and enter it on you admission application.
