Proficiency in the basic skills of reading, writing, arithmetic, and computing is critical to your success. Before you enroll at CCV, you will take basic skills assessments. Not only will the assessments guide you in the course selection process, but they will provide you with feedback on your readiness to undertake college-level courses. Working with an academic advisor, you can develop a plan that meets your personal goals and builds skills necessary for success. Many students find that they need some developmental work to be ready for college-level courses.
