General Admission Requirements


Special Admission Requirements for International Students

In addition to the general admission requirements of the college, all international applicants who wish to enroll as curricular students must demonstrate proficiency in both written and oral English through use of either a standardized national or a locally developed test. Southside Virginia Community College does not issue I-20 forms or enroll students with F-1 visas.  We do enroll non-U.S. citizens who hold one of the following: a current visa, a letter from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services or Homeland Security; or a temporary/permanent resident card. International students should contact the Admissions Office for further information.
