More information on Financial Aid

Get Placed. You may be eligible to waive the placement test. Submit your official transcripts and/or test scores. (Transcripts include college, GED, and high school. Test scores include ACT, AP, CLEP, GED, IB, and SAT.) You may bring these in an officially sealed envelope to any Enrollment Services location at one of our three campuses. Or mail to: Reynolds Community College, Admissions & Records, P.O. Box 85622, Richmond, VA 23285. Visit reynolds.edu/VPTwaiver.

If you are required to take the placement test, take it seriously. The placement test determines what, if any, developmental courses you need first. Developmental courses prepare you for college-level math and English. Prepare in advance and visit reynolds.edu/testprep.

 

Schedule for testing

New students get advised by completing the required two-step orientation both online and on-campus. Sign up at reynolds.edu/orientation

Returning students get advised by meeting with an advisor before registering for class.  

Students with 0-15 credits, see Enrollment Services for advising. Students with 16 or more credits, see your academic program advisor. To find your advisor, visit reynolds.edu/advising.

If you receive financial aid, you must apply each year. See step 1.
