After completing your application and submitting all the necessary paperwork for admission to MVCC, your application will be reviewed by our Admissions staff and you will be notified of acceptance in a timely manner via email and an acceptance packet that is mailed to your home. Once accepted to MVCC, please follow these Steps to Enroll:
Please complete the Admissions Reservation Form online at mvcc.edu/arf or return the paper copy found in the acceptance packet you received in the mail. This form serves as a free admissions deposit and allows us to prepare your records, including your Student Information Registration System (SIRS) personal identification number (PIN) and MVCC email account information.
All students must comply with this requirement, as it is a New York State Law. You will need to show documented proof of receiving immunizations for Measles, Mumps and Rubella, and you are required to complete the Meningitis Response portion of the Health Form. You can find this information at your primary care physician or high school. Download the MVCC Health Form.
You will be notified in a timely manner if you will need to take a placement test. The test is just a way to help us make sure you are placed into the appropriate-level math and English courses so you can get a strong start in your studies.
If you need special accommodations due to a disability, please contact our Accessibility Resources Office.
Schedule Your Test: See the testing schedule and reserve a seat.
Students who do not live locally have a remote testing option available that allows them to take the test closer to home. Learn more at mvcc.edu/placement. Residence Hall students complete placement testing and their GPS (Goals + Plan = Success) appointment when they come to campus for their STAR day. The housing office will send out information about registration for STAR.
Your Student Support Advisor (SSA) will contact you to set up an on-campus appointment where you will create your class schedule for the upcoming semester. Your SSA will be your personal guide and advisor through your next enrollment steps, and is assigned to you based on which academic school houses your major.
If you are a New York State resident who lives outside of Oneida County, you must provide a Certificate of Residency from your home county no earlier than 60 days before the first day of class (and no later than the scheduled payment due date). Failure to complete this requirement will result in a charge equal to the amount of tuition.
Certificates can be obtained at your local county treasurer's office. Download the form and get more information here.
Please ensure that all of your information has been processed by logging into your SIRS account. Click on the Financial Aid Menu link to view your eligibility and any pending awards.
All bills are prepared electronically and are available through your SIRS and MVCC email accounts. Confirming charges is paying your bill with financial aid, and you must confirm your charges through your SIRS account prior to the payment due date. If you have no/partial financial aid, you must pay the remaining balance by enrolling in a payment plan or providing payment in full prior to the payment due date. If you do not confirm charges, enroll in a payment plan, or provide payment in full, you will lose your scheduled classes.
