Pathways to In-Demand Career

The G3 program makes it possible for Virginians with low or modest income to pursue jobs that are in high-demand fields. We understand that time and money can pose some challenges when exploring training for a new career.

The programs offered can fit your busy schedule and many programs can be completed in a short time period. G3 students can select from a list of approved programs in five high-need career areas: Healthcare, Information Technology, Manufacturing and Skilled Trades, Early Childhood Education, and Public Safety.

Today, traditional college students graduate with debt and limited hard skills. Career and technical education is different. Graduates from cutting edge technical colleges don’t struggle to find jobs in their fields – they are in high demand.


How Do I know if I qualify?

  1. Are you a Virginia resident who qualifies for in-state tuition(High school students, DACA students, and pre-allied health students are not eligible for G3 at this time.)
  2. Is your total household income less than or equal to 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (Approximately $50,000 for an individual or $100,000 for a family of four)?
  3. Are you enrolled, or will you enroll, only in a designated G3 program? (Students cannot be in both G3 and non-G3 programs at the same time.)
  4.  If you are pursuing one of the AAS degrees, certificates (CERTs) or career studies certificates (CSCs) listed below, are you enrolled or will you enroll in at least 6 credits each semester?
  5. Have you applied, or will you apply, for financial aid?


What are my next steps?

The G3 program goes into effect on July 1, 2021. Funding for credit programs begins with fall semester. In the meantime, interested students can begin the enrollment process with CVCC.

  1. If you are not a current student, apply to CVCC.
  2. Select your career path from the G3 eligible programs list.
