Apply for Financial Aid
Many of our students receive financial aid (for eligible programs) assistance. There are several different types of aid, and you can learn more about each one below. For more details on the financial aid process, view our Financial Aid Checklist.
Complete Entrance Requirements
Most of our programs have open access (meaning no entrance exams or scores are required to enter the program). There are other programs which have an academic range which applicants must meet. Please review your program admission requirements to determine if you meet the academic requirements for admission to the program.
You can view your current application and entrance requirements in the Application Portal.
CVTC offers a wide variety of certificates and you can apply anytime throughout the year. There is no admission fee or entrance exam requirement to apply for a certificate. While our certificates are not eligible for financial aid, you may find other payment options by checking out our grants, scholarships, Veterans benefits, and payment plan.
Apprenticeships give you access to careers that are typically unavailable to those without experience, and build skills that are transferable from one employer to another and from one area of the country to another. They combine structured on-the-job training with related classroom instruction.
Transcripts & Records
The Records & Registration office maintains official student records and coordinates the registration process, monitors satisfactory academic progress, provides official transcripts, and verifies degree completion.

Credit for Prior Learning
Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) grants college credit toward an associate degree or technical diploma for knowledge or skills you have gained that directly relate to your program. Previous knowledge and skills may be the result of work or volunteer experiences, certifications, apprenticeships, military training, extensive self-instruction, or professional development. Credit for Prior Learning affords you the opportunity to accelerate the completion of your educational goals.
Transferring in credits from other learning environments is common at CVTC. You can transfer in credits from courses taken in high school, by taking an exam, or through apprenticeship training or work experience. Your credits can come from a variety of places, but at least 25% of them must be earned through graded coursework at CVTC.
