This philosophy stresses the need for each institution to offer high-quality education that “minimizes geographic, economic, academic and other barriers to postsecondary education.” Williamsburg Technical College recognizes the importance of an “open door” admission policy which states that the College has an “obligation to respond to the needs of each student at his or her level of ability and development.” In keeping with the system-wide philosophy, Williamsburg Technical College is committed to a comprehensive approach to education which includes the programs in occupational and technical fields, special industrial training, college parallel programs and community service. The College also has a special obligation to maintain a strong program of student financial aid that will diminish economic deterrents to higher education.
