Most FVTC programs use our multiple options placement processes to start you on your path to success. For many programs, you may submit your high school GPA to confirm your readiness to begin college courses. Other options include previous college credits you have earned, ACT scores, GED testing, and more. If none of these fit your situation, don’t worry, Fox Valley Tech administers the placement assessments to match each program.
From the test sections below, see “PROGRAMS THAT REQUIRE…” to determine which skills assessment is required for your program.
These include: ACCUPLACER (Next-Generation), Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test, and the TEAS.
The ACCUPLACER will be 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 GED series tests; earning a score of 165 or higher and completed within the last 10 years. Submit your score report to Admissions for evaluation.
- Have taken and earned the required score on either 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. The TEAS and Bennett Mechanical exams are required for the respective programs.
