If you are currently a high school student and would like to take a course from New River CTC through dual enrollment (classes offered at your high school) or early enrollment (taking classes at New River CTC either at a location or online), we consider you a provisional student.

To be eligible to complete college classes for credit at New River CTC as a high school student, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a junior or senior.
  • Have an overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher.
  • Submit an Application for Admission every semester you will attend.
  • Complete and submit a New River CTC Provisional Form prior to new student registration each semester. The completed form is required in order to register for a course or courses. The Provisional Form can be printed from our site, or you may contact Enrollment Services for a copy by emailing admissions@newriver.edu or calling the Director of Enrollment Services, 304-929-5480.
  • ACT, SAT or Accuplacer placement test scores if you plan to enroll in math, English and other courses with prerequisites. The Accuplacer placement test may be scheduled at New River CTC once your Application for Admission is processed and your student identification number is assigned if you are taking courses at your local campus. Contact your campus Student Success Center representative to arrange to take the Accuplacer test.

Note: Admission and registration will take place on site at the high school for dual enrollment college courses offered within the high school.

As a current high school student, you are not eligible for financial aid while in high school. To receive financial aid after your high school graduation you will apply to college as a first time freshman. Your high school graduation date must be before the start of the academic year to be eligible to receive financial aid.
