This index doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another.

I wouldn’t even give this school a star. They tell me last minute im selected for verification , no one answers the phone, going in, in person the staff is friendly but everyone is telling you different information. No one is on the same page it is very confusing and stressful. And also they just throw you in any available class they do not asks your interest they just put you where they can fit you. Very unprofessional. I might just stop trying to register here smh.Update: 2 months later I’ve had to register for flex classes because they dropped me from all of my 16 week classes after I repeatedly asked them to keep them on hold also after they told me they be checking on my financial aid status. I had to take out a student loan in order to get my books for the classes im starting now because i have to wait until the middle of march to get my financial aid refund. I’ve called the financial aid office plenty of times while accepting the loan that was supposed to be disbursed today, I’ve done the counseling and promisary note and have been waiting for today for two weeks only to be told there’s a “glitch” it says I haven’t accepted my loans and i need to come in and get it fixed. I shouldn’t have to go up to the school every time something “ glitches” in the financial aid office also this should have been communicated to me before, which really leads me to believe they don’t care about my schooling here. This is ridiculous, and I am going to file a district complaint.

I honestly don’t understand the bad reviews here. I recently got enrolled into MVC and it has been by far the best experience I’ve ever had with a school. Everyone knows exactly what to do and points you into the right direction. I got enrolled last minute but still got two of the pre classes I needed. The professors are really very nice and care about their students. The staff in general is super helpful and the campus is beautiful and in a very nice area. I am looking forward to getting the education I want at a reasonable price.

MVC is pretty bad as far as veteran services go. Absolutely 0 help, they don't listen and talk over you. I already have a degree, I just needed some info on something these people should be well informed about. Don't go here if you're a veteran, you wait forever for pointless "help". Go to North lake, 100x better and professional.Side note- The guy in the back(forgot your name) he's on point if you get a chance to speak with him...

Graduated with A.A. degree in 1979. The teachers were great! I gave birth to two of my children while attending night school. Fortunately, I didn't go into labor during classes.
