All programs at CVTC require a COMPASS® score or an acceptable substitute (such as ACT or a Bachelor or Associate Degree).
Course Placement Guides
Just like programs have minimum required scores to be admitted, some general education courses at CVTC also have a minimum required scores. If you do not meet the minimum requirements for a general education course, you have the option of retaking COMPASS® or taking a Prepared Learner course. Please note that you may still be required to meet minimum COMPASS scores to fulfill admission requirements.
These classes are designed to get students ready for a variety of college-level academics, including reading, writing, math, and science. If your score is below a certain level, you will need to take a Prepared Learner course before you can enroll in the course required for your program. You must complete the course with a grade of C or better.
