The goal of placement is to assess skills to ensure students are able to successfully engage with course content and have the best chances at passing the course. Most courses at YVC have placement prerequisites for writing and math ability. Also, all degree-seeking students must have both a writing and math placement in order to make a New Student Orientation appointment and register for classes. Start your college career the right way at Yakima Valley College and get into the classes that are best for you.
