Registration Process for New Students

  1. Apply to Cedar Valley College
    There is no cost to apply, and prospective students can apply online or in person. Future students (prospective students) must complete an application for admission. You may also need to submit proof of bacterial meningitis vaccination as part of your admissions process.

    Submit your official high school transcript or a copy of your diploma or a copy of your GED certificate by mail, directly from the other school, or in person to the Admissions Office in a SEALED envelope.

  2. Advising Information Session
    Sign-up to attend an Advising Information Session once you have been admitted to the college. This session will provide you with information about degree planning, registration, pre-assesment activity, and assessment testing.

  3. Assessment test
    Before registering, you must meet the requirements of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), which include assessment testing. All students are required by law to take an assessment test approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB). See an academic advisor regarding exemption criteria based on SAT, ACT, or TAKS scores, or successful completion of college-level coursework. Students can review test material at the CVC Assessment Center website.

  4. Advising/Registration
    Schedule a visit with an academic advisor to review your test scores and select your courses. Academic advisors will help you plan your schedule based on your program of study. After meeting with an advisor you can self-register on eConnect. See registration dates and deadlines for current registration information.

  5. Arrange Payment
    Tuition is due on the payment due date printed on the registration summary. Please be prepared to pay when you register. Cash, checks, money orders, and major credit cards are accepted for tuition and other payments. Learn more about Financial Aid, grants, loans, and scholarships by visiting the Financial Aid office.
