J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College — Virginia's newest community college — was founded in 1972 to serve the capital region in and around the City of Richmond. Since then, Reynolds has grown into the third largest college in the Virginia Community College System, enrolling students at three major campuses, at 5 off-campus sites, and "virtually" through distance learning.
The College currently offers 24 two-year occupational/technical degree programs, 9 occupational/technical certificate programs, 5 two-year college transfer programs, and 43 career studies certificate programs requiring less than one-year of full-time study. Having enrolled more than 308,423 persons in credit courses since its opening, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College continues to strive to meet the aspirations of its namesake to provide “a practical and economic answer to the future educational needs of thousands of ...Virginians.”
Over 19,500 credit students attend Reynolds for:
: : Degrees that transfer to four-year universities and colleges in Virginia and elsewhere.
: : Degrees, certificates, and career studies certificates that prepare credit students for employment.
: : Credit courses for students who do not currently wish to complete an entire program — during the day, evening, on weekends, via distance learning and through dual enrollment.
Over 15,500 non-credit students come to the college for:
: : Workforce Development courses and services through the Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA). >> Learn more about non-credit opportunities
Responding to the recommendation of a legislative study committee that “every citizen of the Commonwealth be given an opportunity to attend an institution of higher learning offering academic, occupational/ technical, and community service programs at a nominal cost,” in 1966 the General Assembly of Virginia established a state-wide system of community colleges. A newly established State Board for Community Colleges prepared a master plan for a system of 23 institutions. The Lieutenant Governor, J. Sargeant Reynolds, heralded the creation of the community college system by the General Assembly as “one of its finest acts and finest hours in this century.” J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, the last of these colleges, is named in honor of the late Lieutenant Governor of the State, who championed legislation creating the state-supported community colleges. Opened in 1972 in temporary headquarters, the college is now a three-campus institution and the third largest in the Virginia Community College System. > Learn More
