Request High School Equivalency Records

VGCC does not process HSE diploma or transcript requests. All High School Equivalency (HSE) diplomas, transcripts, and verification requests for GED®, HiSET, and TASC tests are processed through DiplomaSender. Please contact Diploma Sender at DiplomaSender.com or at 855-313-5799 for your transcript requests or queries regarding transcripts or diploma.

Placement Testing

Placement into gateway English and Math courses for new students is determined by the RISE placement policy. RISE uses a student’s unweighted US high school GPA to determine placement rather than requiring placement testing for all new students. Students can only attempt the RISE EdReady placement test 2 times within 10 years.

The following students are required to take the RISE EdReady placement test unless they have transferable credit or placement test scores from other colleges or universities that eliminate the need for placement testing:

  • Students who graduated from a foreign high school
  • Students who earned an Adult High School Diploma
  • Students whose GED or HiSET scores do not demonstrate mastery

Schedule Placement Testing

To schedule an appointment for placement testing, fill out the Placement Testing Request Form. If you have any trouble, please contact the Testing Center at testingcenter@vgcc.edu.
