Vincennes University maintains an “Open Door” admissions policy. Admission as a student to Vincennes University leading to a degree or technical certificate requires either:
- a recognized high school diploma, or
- a General Educational Development (GED) diploma.
Applicants with a high school diploma that was not earned through a Graduate Qualifying Exam may be required to complete one of the following to be permitted to register for classes:
- Demonstrate their college readiness by presenting 48 hours of postsecondary credit from a regionally accredited institution.
- Alternatively, these applicants may demonstrate their college readiness by obtaining a minimum score as approved by Vincennes University on one of three subtests of the Computerized Placement Tests (CPTs), provided free of charge by VU.
- Finally, these applicants may instead submit achievement of the minimum scores on any of the other tests approved by Vincennes University to document an applicant’s college readiness.
Applicants who do not meet any of the above criteria may appeal to the Director of Admissions. Vincennes University reserves the right to deny admission or continuing enrollment.
Questions about the appeal process should be referred to the Director of Admissions at 812.888.4313.
