If you do not have official transcripts turned in, you must submit unofficial transcripts for advising purposes ONLY prior to scheduling a registration appointment or you may bring them with you. You will still be responsible for submitting official transcripts. Excludes Transient students. Special students may need unofficial transcripts if aplicable in order to meet a pre-requisite requirement for coursework. Current high school students (provisional) who have taken dual credit or college courses should submit unofficial transcripts when necessary to meet select course prerequisite requirements.
- If you have not submitted ACT, SAT or Compass (accepted from a WV public high school) placement test scores or have not passed a college level Math and English course from an accredited college in which New River accepts, you will need to take a placement test. For test scores to be accepted, the test date must be within 5 years from the date of Application for Admission.Tests are administered through the Student Success Center.
- Successfully complete online Orientation. Transient, Special (non-degree seeking) and Provisional (current high school) students are not required to complete online orientation. Returning (readmitted) students who have completed online Orientation within the last year are also exempt. The Office of Admissions will verify completion within the last year in order to schedule readmits.
Conditionally admitted certificate or degree seeking students may schedule an appointment for November 30, 2015 thru January 8, 2016 to register providing they have submitted at least unofficial college transcripts to the Office of Admissions for advising purposes if all official transcripts have not been received. If no college work has been completed, a student must have completed placement testing within the Student Success Center and scores must be entered prior to scheduling an appointment.
