Eligibility Requirements

Participants must be:

  • A current adult school student in a high school equivalency program.
  • A high school student with a total weighted GPA of 2.0 or higher.

9th and 10th grade students wishing to take SBVC courses, will need to fill out a Petition for Academic Exception in addition to the other routine forms. This petition will go before a committee for approval. You will be notified about the petition's status via your SBVC student email account, which is created for you when you apply to the college. If approved, you may participate in the Valley Now program.
