Placement

IMPORTANT: The placement office is currently open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 8am-3pm. We are still available over the phone and email. For the Wenatchee campus, contact 509-682-6830 or placement@wvc.edu.

For the Omak campus, if you have recently graduated high school or are transferring from another college or university, email transcripts to omakplacement@wvc.edu. If you have applied to WVC recently, monitor your email for further information. 

The Pre-Placement Questionnaire will help you determine if you need to take the placement assessments or if you might have other documentation that would place you in math and English classes. The Pre-Placement Questionnaire is not a test and takes less than five minutes to complete.

You should not take the Pre-Placement Questionnaire if...

  • you have already earned college credit for both English AND math. Instead, send your college transcripts for review to placement@wvc.edu if attending Wenatchee, or omakplacement@wvc.edu if attending Omak.
  • you are a high school student who is interested in the Running Start program. Instead, contact the Running Start Office directly at (509) 682-6920 or runningstart@wvc.edu for program eligibility requirements.
