Admission

[ NVCC Home Page | Schedule Search | Table of Contents | Previous Page | Next Page ]

GENERAL
    If you have a high school diploma or the equivalent, or are at least 18 years old, and are able to benefit from enrollment, you are eligible for admission to NVCC. You must complete an Application for Admission and submit it to the campus of your choice. This campus will become your home campus where your records will be maintained. You may change your home campus at the Admissions and Records office. It is to your advantage to complete and submit your application early. You will be unable to register until this form has been processed and you have been admitted to the College.
    If you are claiming entitlement to in-state tuition rates, you must also complete an Application for Virginia In-State Tuition Rates prior to registration and payment of tuition. You must submit this form to your home campus for review. When you apply for in-state tuition, you should be prepared to present documentation to support your claim. Eligibility for in-state tuition rates will be determined on review of this completed form at your home campus prior to registration for classes.
    To be eligible for in-state tuition rates, you must be continuously domiciled in Virginia for at least one year immediately preceding the first official day of classes. Please refer to the College Catalog or contact the campus Admissions and Records Office for further domicile information.
    Changes that may occur later in your residence, tax payment status, auto registration, etc., must be reported to your home Campus Registrar. Failure to report changes that could affect your domicile and eligibility for in-state tuition could result in the College’s billing you for tuition due and/or taking disciplinary action against you.

International Students. If you are an international student applicant requiring an I-20 form for a student visa, and/or your native language is not English, you should see the College Catalog (also located on the College Web site at http://www.nvcc.edu/catalog/cat2001/admin/admissn.htm) for admission requirements.

    Restricted Programs. If you plan to apply to any of the Health Technology Programs or the Veterinary Technology program, you must meet the special admission requirements outlined in the "Instructional Programs" section of the College Catalog. Also, in this schedule, see the "Off-Campus Class Locations and Campus-Specific Information" section for details about the Health Technology Programs at Annandale and the Veterinary Technology Program at Loudoun.

ASSESSMENT AND PLACEMENT TESTING
    Basic skills assessment and placement testing are intended to assist you in selecting courses and designing an academic program in which you will most likely be successful. THESE TESTS ARE NOT ADMISSIONS TESTS. Prior to testing, you must have submitted an Application for Admission to the College. A photo identification is required when you come to the Testing Center to take the tests.
    For information about testing or testing accommodations, contact the Counseling or Testing Center at your home campus.

    Basic Skills Assessment. Assessment of your strengths and weaknesses in reading, writing, and mathematics will help you determine the appropriate courses to select. This assessment is accomplished through a group of basic skills assessment tests administered through the Testing Center at each campus.
    If you are a degree-seeking student, you are encouraged to take basic skills tests in reading, writing, and mathematics before you register for classes.
    Students who have not taken the basic skills tests and have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of less than 2.00 after completion of 9 semester hours at NVCC, or students who are transferring to NVCC with a cumulative GPA of less than 2.00 (regardless of the number of hours completed) must take the basic skills test in reading and writing. A counselor will determine if it is appropriate for you to take basic skills tests in mathematics as well. For more details about GPA, see "Academic Information," in the Administrative Information section of the College Catalog.

Course Placement Testing. Some courses require that you obtain a minimum score on one or more placement tests before you may enroll in those courses. If your score on the required placement test(s) does not meet the standard, you must complete prescribed courses. The course(s) required will be determined by your score. These requirements apply to all campuses and ELI, unless specifically waived by the responsible division chair.
    The following courses require placement testing. See a counselor to determine the appropriate test to take for each course.
