Placement Assessment Scores

Placement assessments help determine your starting point for program courses. If your scores indicate an adequate skill level, you'll be ready to begin your courses. If your scores are below the cut-off, we can help you build your skills to be successful in your program. Learn more about placement assessment scores and the conversion for various assessments. 

General Education Score Requirements (PDF)
Program Score Requirements (PDF)

High School students may submit their ACT scores to FVTC. If those scores do not meet the General Education/Program score requirements, students may take the ACCUPLACER test once at their high school. If those scores still do not meet the minimum score requirements, the student may retest once at any FVTC location. Or, if the student  prefers, he/she may take it twice at any FVTC campus instead of taking it at the high school. There is no cost for ACCUPLACER testing at high school locations. Testing at FVTC is $15 per test.


K-12 Articulations

What are Advanced Standing and Dual Credit?

An Advanced Standing class is a high school course that matches a technical college course taught by a high school teacher at the high school. A successful student becomes eligible to receive advanced standing after enrolling in an associate degree or a technical diploma at the college.

A Dual (Transcripted) Credit class is a technical college course taught by a WTCS transcripted credit certified high school teacher at the high school. A high school student earns credit at their high school and at the technical college.
