Most Popular Fields of Study


VGCC accepts admission applications from high school graduates. Students are placed in various programs after careful selection following individual counseling and career guidance. VGCC also conducts an aptitude test that helps students decide which course to opt for. Based on the results of this test, students are assigned to a particular program of study. In cases of students who have completed their high school through online or correspondence courses, documents proving the national accreditation of the high school, and its recognition by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation or the United States Department of Education, need to be submitted.

The admission application form can be completed and submitted either online or in person at the college campus. All official transcripts including GED certification and other credentials must be submitted along with the application. Some students may be required to take a placement test. Those in possession of an associate’s degree from an accredited institution need not submit their high school transcripts.

Financial Aid

VGCC provides different types of financial aid to students. The Federal and state aids are generally disbursed to students who have a financial need. Scholarships are given out on the basis of meritorious academic performance.

A Financial Aid Counseling session is held every year before students begin to apply for financial assistance. A large number of scholarships, grants, work study programs, government programs, veterans’ assistance, childcare assistance, and loans are available at VGCC. Deserving candidates are given the Academic Achievement Award, Teacher Assistant Scholarship Fund, Presidential Merit Award, and Nurse Scholarship Loan.
