If you have taken college level classes while in high school, you can upload a transcript from the respective college to see if your courses are eligible for credit at NVCC. Transcripts may also be used to waive placement testing and prerequisite requirements.

Test Scores (Optional)

If you have taken SAT’s, ACT’s and/or the GED, upload test scores to determine if you need to take the placement exam and for placement into math and English classes.
