Students must meet minimum Math and English admission requirements to dual enroll, regardless of the course taken.

GENERAL TESTING INFORMATION:
- If a student does not have the required SAT or ACT test scores they will need to take a Virginia Placement Test (VPT) in Math and English.
- VPT ENGLISH– Requires a written essay and completion of a series of multiple choice questions. Students must write a well thought out essay, with multiple paragraphs, using proper spelling and grammar (100 words will not be enough content for a good score). For videos on what to expect:
- This final video is much longer (nearly 20 minutes).

- VPT MATH – There are several, different, math placement tests. Students need to indicate what class they are looking to take to ensure they take the right math placement test.
- There is no fee for Virginia placement testing.
- Placement tests can be taken at your public high school or closest LFCC testing center.
- Students can only take the placement test twice in a 12 month period.
- We do not recommend taking both placement tests on the same day.
- Students must complete placement tests before they can register for courses, or have appropriate SAT’s or ACT’s waivers.
- Students should CLICK HERE and take a practice placement test before taking the actual test.
