Most degree and diploma programs require a placement assessment as part of the admissions process. FVTC administers the ACCUPLACER (Next-Generation), the BENNETT MECHANICAL, and the TEAS. For each test section below, see “PROGRAMS THAT REQUIRE…” to determine which skills assessment is required for your program.
You may possibly have the ACCUPLACER waived if you meet one of the following options:
- If you have previous college credits or completed at least an associate's degree, you may submit your college transcript to Admissions for evaluation.
- If you have taken the Reasoning through Language Arts and/or Mathematical Reasoning with the 2014 series GED tests and have earned a score of 165 or higher, you may submit your score report to Admissions for evaluation.
- If you have completed the ACT, Asset, Companion, or Compass assessments within the last 3 years, you may submit those scores to Admissions for evaluation.
Note: ONLY ACCUPLACER scores may be waived. BENNETT MECHANICAL and TEAS are required for the respective programs.
