Early College, CVGS & STEM Academy Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply to CVCC?


What is my CVCC ID number?

You will receive this number at the end of your application.  This is your unique ID number for CVCC.  (It is also referred to as an EMPLID.)

Can I apply to more than one program?

Students can apply to multiple programs; however, students can only enroll in one program. 

I need to take the placement test (VPT); how do I arrange that?

Students need to apply first to CVCC prior to testing. The CVCC ID number is required to login to the placement test. Testing can be done Monday–Friday at CVCC from 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. daily.

Who should I request teacher recommendations from?

For the different programs, it specifically states what recommendations are required.  This information can be found on the CVGS and STEM websites, as well as Early College Program applications. 

Students are strongly encouraged to request a teacher recommendation, especially for math and science, from a high school teacher. 

It’s important to ask for a recommendation from a teacher who will give a good one.
