1. Students new to the Ventura Community College District must first complete the college application. The application can be accessed on-line at www.venturacollege.edu/apply. Hard copies of the application are available in the EAC office. EAC staff can assist you with completing and entering the application. To complete the application you will need your social security number, date and location of high school graduation, address information for at least the prior two years, residency card for students who are not U.S. citizens, and parent or guardian information for students under 19 years of age. When the application is complete, you will be provided with a 900 student ID number, which you will need for further transactions at the college.
2. Take the Math and English placement tests. EAC staff can help you schedule the tests and make arrangements for extended time or other appropriate accommodations.
3. Make an appointment with an EAC counselor at (805)289-6300. You will need to provide your 900 student ID number in order to make an appointment.

On the day of your appointment, please bring your 900 number, a photo ID, and documentation to verify your disability, such as a report from your doctor or an IEP. If you do not have documentation, please bring the name, address, phone and FAX number of the doctor or other professional who can verify your disability.
