On March 11, Virginia’s Community Colleges (VCCS) unveiled a new online tool for career and higher education planning: the Virginia Education Wizard, (www.vawizard.org) a one-stop, online resource that brings together information about careers, curriculum and financial assistance.
Users can visit the Wizard to get tailored information about where they are in their career journey and create a path that will get them to future goals:
• Prospective students can identify career paths; curriculum choices, including potential transfers to four-year institutions; and financial assistance.
• Current students can track their current job credentials or associate’s degree paths and plan for transfers to complete bachelor’s degrees.
• Experienced workers can explore new careers, and learn about required education or certification tools, and enroll in Virginia’s Community Colleges.
First-time users build a personal profile that enables them to build a tailored experience, based on their career interests or selected degree programs.
