Frequently Asked Questions:

Piedmont Virginia Community College
Admissions and Records

*Send an official transcript if your previous college coursework was obtained outside the Virginia Community College System.

When should I send PVCC my high school transcripts?

Recent high school graduates are encouraged to submit their high school transcripts to the Admissions & Advising Center prior to enrolling in classes, as it may exempt them from placement testing in English and/or math. You can find more information on the High School Steps to Enrollment and the Measures for English and Math Placement

If you are more than 5 years out of high school or have previously completed college-level English and/or math at another college, then you do not need to submit your high school transcript.

How do I get my international transcript evaluated?

Have your international transcript(s) evaluated by a professional organization or agency that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluators or is approved by the Virginia Department of Education. The fee for this evaluation and the time required for completion of the evaluation varies with each agency and is the responsibility of the student. The student must meet all college residency requirements to receive an academic credential. 

Request a course-by-course evaluation.  Document-by-document evaluations will NOT be accepted by PVCC for transfer credit.

Instruct the evaluation agency to mail an official report directly to:
