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:
- High school GPA of 2.75 or higher if graduated within the last 10 years. Submit your high school transcript to Admissions.
- Previous college credits or completed at least an associate's degree. Submit your college transcript to Admissions for evaluation.
- 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. Submit your score report to Admissions for evaluation.
- Completed the ACT, Asset, Companion, or Compass assessments within the last 3 years. Submit your scores to Admissions for evaluation.
Note: ONLY ACCUPLACER scores may be waived. BENNETT MECHANICAL and TEAS are required for the respective programs.
