Housing Eligibility

MVCC is committed to providing a Residence Hall environment conducive to academic success.    On-campus housing is a privilege and is only available to students who demonstrate academic accomplishments, in addition to fulfilling the requirements of the Code of Conduct and Commitment to Civility, which are separate policies enforced according to the most current Student Handbook.


Initial Eligibility – New MVCC Applicant

First-time applicants must meet one of the following criteria in order to be eligible for on-campus housing:
• A minimum cumulative high school average of 70 at time of Admissions application OR
• A GED minimum score of 2400 OR
• A transfer student who attempted a minimum of 12 equivalent credit hours and earned a minimum 1.5 housing review* GPA in their most recent semester.

Initial Eligibility – Current non-resident MVCC Student or past MVCC Student

Currently in 1st semester at MVCC
• A minimum cumulative high school average of 70 at time of Admissions application OR
• A GED minimum score of 2400 OR
• A transfer student who attempted a minimum of 12 equivalent credit hours and earned a minimum 1.5 housing review GPA in their most recent semester.

AND
• Currently attempting a minimum of 12 equivalent credit hours and earn a minimum 1.5 housing review GPA at end of semester.

Completed at least one full-time semester at MVCC
• Attempted a minimum of 12 equivalent credit hours and earned a minimum 1.5 housing review GPA in their most recent semester.
 

*In order to get the most accurate, and fair view of your academic performance, the “Housing Review” GPA includes all courses; credit and non-credit. 


*In order to apply this policy in a consistent manner, there is no appeal for exceptions.

*Past students who did not complete their first semester are subject to new applicant eligibility.



Continued Eligibility: Applies to current Residence Hall Students who wish to return the next semester


ALL Residence Hall students are subject to the Standards of Academic Progress as outlined in the MVCC College Student Handbook/Planner. Students may continue to reside in the Residence Halls ONLY IF the previous semester "Housing Review GPA" is greater than or equal to 1.0.
In order to get the most accurate, and fair, reflection of a student's academic accomplishments, this "Housing Review GPA" considers ALL courses for which a student received a grade that semester, including remedial courses.   The " Housing Review GPA" MAY differ from the regular GPA that appears on a SIRS Account because it takes into account all grades, rather than only credit bearing.
 

Returning residents who become ineligible for Residence Hall housing may file a request for an independent review (not an appeal) with the Vice President for Student Affairs.  Contact the Residence Life Office for more information.

Re-Entry of Prior Academically Ineligible Student:
A prior resident who was previously dismissed from the Residence Halls due to academic ineligibility is subject to “initial eligibility” criteria and may return to the Residence Halls upon completion of a minimum of 12 equivalent credit hours taken within one semester with a minimum "Housing Review GPA" of 1.5; as vacancies allow.  Students who have not attempted 12 equivalent hours since becoming ineligible are invited to file a Request for an Independent Revew.
