Below are the placement options you may choose when meeting with an EVC Academic Counselor:

All students should bring a copy of their U.S. high school transcript with them when they first meet with an EVC academic counselor.
If you are unable to obtain a copy of your high school transcript, but remember your high school GPA, you can self-report this GPA when meeting with your EVC academic counselor.

Pass the AP English Language or Literature Composition Exam or the AP Calculus or AP Statistics exam with a score of 3 or above.
Provide proof of these results when meeting with an EVC Academic Counselor.
