ACCUPLACER/Placement Testing is not being administered.  Students may use the Guided Self-Placement procedures to determine their first English, reading and mathematics course at RVC. If none of those placement methods provide sufficient placement, the College is deferring placement testing during the COVID-19 health crisis.  For information on the deferment form and placement testing updates, please check out our Placement Requirements.
