Per the VCCS policy manual, students are permitted one attempt and one re-test on the Virginia Placement Test (VPT) - English and the Virginia Placement Test (VPT) - Mathematics assessments within a twelve month period. Additionally, students who attempt developmental education courses are ineligible for a retest. Exceptions to this policy can be made on a case-by-case basis by completing the Retest Policy Exception Form.
The possible justifications for granting a retest include the following:
The developmental instructor must complete the Retest Policy Exception Form for the student and obtain the student and the academic dean's signature. The signed form is then presented to the LTC by the student as permission to complete the placement test. The LTC will make a copy of the form to file in the LTC and the original will be forwarded to the Records Office.
