CRITERIA FOR CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT (K-12 Grades)
Admission to VVC
A K-12 student will be admitted to VVC as a special part-time student if it has been determined by the K-12 school that the student is prepared for degree-applicable credit coursework. The school principal or designee must recommend and certify that the student is prepared for college level coursework. For Home School students, a copy of the affidavit which has been filed with the Superintendent of Public Instruction must be submitted to the Admissions and Records office prior to registration. Although the K-12 school makes this recommendation, all students must complete VVC's placement tests in English and mathematics as part of the admission process. Concurrent students must apply for admission each semester. Click here for VVC Steps to Enrollment for Concurrent Students (K-12 grade).(pdf)
