ADMISSION

To be considered for admission to one of the CERTIFICATE or DEGREE LEVEL PROGRAMMES, a student should have graduated from High School with CXC or GCE required passes, or have achieved the equivalent of High School graduation. No student will be allowed to register for a CERTIFICATE PROGRAMME unless the above requirements have been satisfied.

While there are not stipulated admission requirements to any of the Enrichment Courses, the instructor may require some level of proficiency in the area of interest, depending on the complexity of the subject being offered.

In addition, a student is expected to present the following:

a) High School diploma and CXC/GCE Certificates where required.

b) Passport, birth certificate, or proof of residence status and time of arrival in the British Virgin Islands.

c) Social Security number, if employed.

Admission to the College does not guarantee enrollment in the programme or courses requested by the student. Placement is based on assessment standards developed to help ensure the student's academic success. Prior to registration, placement tests in English Language and Mathematics will be administered particularly for those students who have not satisfied the College's entry requirements. Students are advised to contact the College for information on testing and academic counselling.
