Course Placement '21-'22
Test Optional Admissions is here for 2021-2022 incoming students! Incoming students for the Fall of 2021 benefited from MVNU’s test optional review process for admission into the university. As a result, students were admitted based primarily on their high school GPA and the type of courses they completed in high school. If students submitted an ACT or SAT as part of their application, it was considered only if it helped strengthen their application to be accepted.
There are four pathways for course placement purposes.
Pathway 1:Submit official test scores. If you have ACT/SAT or Accuplacer scores, not previously submitted to MVNU, please request a copy of your official score report to be sent to Jackie.Dove@MVNU.edu. Scores received from the high school counselor or the testing organization are considered official.
Pathway 2:Advanced Placement (AP) Coursework in English and/or Mathematics with an exam score of 3+.
Pathway 3:College Credit Plus (CCP) coursework in English and/or Mathematics, with a final grade of C- or better.
Pathway 4:Complete an approved assessment. (More information about the approved assessments found below).
