Yakima Valley College does not desire to replace or duplicate the functions of the local public schools in regards to providing instruction to students under the age of eighteen. For applicants under the age of 16, academic as well as emotional maturity is of particular concern. However, the college does recognize there are certain circumstances when an underage applicant would benefit from college level course work. To respond to the needs of those students the college has established a special admissions policy.
Applicants not qualifying for admission through regular admissions procedures or qualifying for an established program must request consideration of admittance under the special admissions procedure. The two tracks for special admissions are audition and academic.
