Examples where High School Data Does Not Apply
|If you either completed the 11th grade or graduated from a United States high school within the past 10 years, we can now use your high school performance to qualify you for college-level English and math courses. Recent statewide research shows that your high school GPA is one of the strongest predictors of future performance in college courses.||

NEW English Placement Using HS Multiple Measures
We now import your self-reported high school information from your application to place you into your English course. This automatically occurs once you complete the Online Orientation.
In order to receive your English placement, make sure to login to your MyAVC account and complete the Online Orientation. Refer to your application confirmation email with instructions about how to access your MyAVC. To review your English placement after completing the Online Orientation:
- Log into MyAVC
