Dual Enrollment (DE) students cannot self-register for classes. High Schools must provide the student enrollment information. From this, billing is generated and sent to the high schools. The Enrollment Roster, in addition to providing the information to enroll students into dual enrollment classes, serves as part of the verification documentation needed to generate tuition charges and verifies that the school has given permission for the student to participate in the dual enrollment program. Enrollment requests are submitted through Google Docs.
Plans of Study & VWCC Courses
Please review course pre-requisites, VPT requirements and Course Outlines through the VWCC online catalog.
Virginia Western Community College recommends that the dual enrollment class use the same textbook as the one used by the College; however, recognizing the expense involved in this recommendation, the College permits schools to use comparable textbooks which cover the same topics.
Alternative Test and GPA Scores
High school aged students must demonstrate college readiness in math and English, meet the applicable college placement requirements, and address all other college admission criteria. The chart for placement criteria can be found at this link.
The VCCS has determined that high school GPA and math coursework or approved alternative test scores are can be used to indicate college readiness.
VWCC does not have access to information for the alternative test scores (PSAT, SAT, ACT, SOL, AP) that could be used to meet the admission requirement. This information must be provided by the high schools.
This information should be provided to the college by the high school counseling office using the Alternative Test and GPA Scores spreadsheet and submitted through Google Docs before we can enroll students into dual enrollment classes. The spreadsheet and a list of the students for whom this information is needed will be sent from the Dual Enrollment Office to the high school counseling office.
Student Industry Credentialing Exam Reporting
Industry credentials earned by dual enrollment students must be reported to the college by the high school instructor or CTE Director using Google Docs.
