First-Time Freshman

If you are applying to New River CTC for the first time (even if you took college classes while in high school) and you have not attended another college, we consider you a first-time freshman student. A first-time freshman must submit the following before becoming fully admitted to a Certificate or Associate Degree program:

  • An Application for Admission form.
  • A final official high school transcript mailed directly from the high school (a copy is not an official document). The official transcript must include the date of graduation and be in the school's sealed envelope.
  • Submit a copy of General Education Development (GED) test scores.
  • A copy of your ACT, SAT, Compass (from a WV high school), or Accuplacer placement test scores. The Accuplacer placement test may be taken at New River by contacting the testing Program Coordinator once you have completed the application process.
  • Official transcripts from all colleges in which coursework was taken while in high school, sent directly from the institution to the local New River campus Office of Admissions you will attend.
  • In order to make an appointment to register for courses, a new student must complete Online Orientation, have submitted placement test scores, and if applicable requested official college transcripts (if taken in high school) must be received. 


 The Presidential Scholarship is a merit based scholarship for current high school seniors graduating.
