The G3 Program is Designed to Change Lives
On July 1, 2021, Community College is launching a training and education program for students with a family income of less than $100,000* to help prepare them for good careers and open jobs in Virginia.
These programs are designed to fit around the busy schedules of working students. Each program has three levels that build on each other. After each level, you earn a certification that can lead to a job. This means students can take breaks in training without losing progress along the way to an associate degree.
The financial assistance for this program is “last dollar,” which covers any remaining tuition or fees after other grants and scholarships are spent.
*roughly an income of $100,000 for a family of four
