Admission as a student to Vincennes University leading to a degree or technical certificate requires either:
- a high school diploma, or
- an official General Educational Development (GED) or Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) transcript, or
- 24 hours of postsecondary credit from a regionally-accredited institution. If you would like to transfer credits from another institution, please be sure to provide an official transcript (transcript mailed from another college or university directly to Vincennes University) from each college attended.

Applicants with a high school diploma that was not earned through a Graduation Qualifying Exam (GQE) must demonstrate their college readiness before being allowed to register for classes. College readiness can be proven by presenting postsecondary credit for college level English or math from a regionally-accredited institution or obtaining a minimum score as designated by the U.S. Department of Education on one of the three subtests of the Accuplacer placement exam, 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 the U.S. Dept. of Education to document an applicant's college readiness (view list of tests and required minimum scores).
Applicants who are not eligible for registration may appeal to the Director of Admissions to have their application reviewed for provisional acceptance.
Vincennes University maintains an open door admissions policy but reserves the right to deny admission and/or registration based on the individual's ability to benefit from available educational services. It is strongly recommended that students meet the Indiana Core 40 curriculum requirements, but it is not required for admission.
