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.

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.

In order to take courses in the Liberal Arts Associate of Science program (200 level courses) your scores must meet certain placement levels.
