  • Application for Admission ( click HERE for Online Application -- you must allow popups in your web browser )
  • Official High School Transcript
  • ACT/SAT Scores
  • Immunization Records
  • The Office of Admissions personnel can answer questions about the admissions process and the degree programs. To participate in Return to Learn all applicants must be fully admitted to participate in the early Registration and Advising sessions to be held on Tuesday, July 10th, 5:00pm - 8:00pm and Saturday, August 4th, 9:00am - noon. The Office of Admissions also may be consulted about dates when the ACT examination is administered on campus.

    Persons seeking admission must have completed the following college preparatory curriculum in high school: four units of basic English (grammar, composition, and literature); two units of laboratory science (biology, chemistry, physics, and other theory-based courses with a strong laboratory science orientation); two units of mathematics including algebra and higher; and three units of social studies, including U.S. History. Also highly recommended, but not required, are one unit of physical education and one of foreign language. Students who are deficient in one or more areas may be admitted to the Kanawha Valley Community & Technical College until such time as deficiencies are removed.

    Students found to be deficient in basic skills on the basis of ACT or proficiency test scores may be required to take developmental courses before enrolling in courses in a regular curriculum.

    Acceptance for admission to the College does not necessarily mean admission to a particular degree. Students seeking admission to programs which have limited enrollment or admissions requirements must apply for admission to the individual program as well as for general admission to the College. Students may consult the requirements for associate and bachelor degrees later on this WEBSITE to determine if application must be made separately for admission to the program.

    Once the requirements for admissions have been completed and you have been accepted you will receive information  with directions on signing up for a Registration and Advising session.
