Academic Placement at VGCC
Starting Spring 2020, Vance-Granville has a new placement policy called Rise that uses unweighted US high school GPA to determine placement instead of testing for all eligible students. Students can only sit for the RISE test 2 times within 10 years.
Only the following students will be allowed to take the RISE placement test:
- Students who graduated from high school over 10 years from their entry into VGCC
- Students who graduated from a foreign high school
- Students who earned an Adult High School Diploma
- Students whose GED or HiSET scores do not demonstrate mastery
For more information about RISE and testing, see the VGCC Testing Services webpage.
