Future Students

​​​​​Future Students​

The following steps ensure that all students are prepared with the essential tools to be successful at EVC and beyond. Before you can register, you must complete orientation, assessment, and develop an abbreviated education plan.

step 1 – Apply

Begin your application by clicking here: Apply to EVC

Step 2 – Orientation

An Orientation provides general information regarding EVC's services and programs.  Students are provided with an overview of transfer and degree requirements, vocational programs, and student services as well as academic expectations, facilities and resources available. You are required to complete the orientation either online or in person.

  • To complete the online orientation, you will need to activate your Canvas account before you begin the orientation. To activate your Canvas Account Click Here Once you have successfully activated your Canvas account, you can then access the Online Orientation by Clicking Here.

  • To schedule an In-person Orientation in Vietnamese only, please call (408) 270-6475

Note: Please bring all transcripts and/or test scores with you to the In-person orientation.  In particular, we will need your high school transcripts if you are a recent high school graduate.

Step 3 – Assessment

  • Provide high school transcript for multiple measures assessment (placement) by the college counselor. Growing evidence indicates that school transcripts and non-cognitive variables greatly improve the accuracy of the initial placement process. Students are encouraged to utilize their high school transcript in lieu of taking the placement test when completing the matriculation process. ​​To schedule a multiple measures assessment with a counselor, please call (408)270-6475. 


  • Take an Assessment Test to determine which English and Math classes you will start. To schedule an assessment test, please call (408) 274-7900 ext. 6636.
    Please have your student ID ready and a photo ID on your placement test day. It is strongly recommended that you take steps to prepare for the assessment test as those scores will help place you in the appropriate Math and English courses.

Step 4 – Education Plan

  • All students should work with a counselor to develop an Abbreviated Ed plan prior to registering for classes for their first semester.  This is a short initial plan that will ensure that you are taking appropriate level courses. Counseling can be reached at (408) 270-6475
  • For Veteran Students intending to use their Veteran Benefits, you will need to contact the Veterans Freedom Center to schedule an appointment with a Veterans Counselor to develop your Ed Plan. Please go to the Veterans Freedom Center website for more information.
