Steps to becoming a resident

Application Deadline:  Housing is available on a first come, first served basis.  Students are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible.  Applications/deposits are not accepted after 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 29th.  We will accept applications again beginning on September 6, 2017.  At that time, applications will only be accepted from students who are full-time registered students (secured payment) who can secure room and board payment either by remaining processed financial aid or via the NELNET  payment plan within 24 hours.


Thank you for your interest in applying.  We look forward to you being a resident.  

New to MVCC Students:

Step 1: Apply to MVCC

Step 2: After being accepted to MVCC, an acceptance letter will be sent to you. 

Step 3: Soon after being accepted, a Housing Information Packet will be sent to you by the Residence Life Office.  This is typically sent within a few weeks after receiving your MVCC acceptance.

Step 4: Complete the Housing Preference Form and return it, along with the required $100 deposit to the Residence Life Office in the postage paid envelope.

Step 5: A confirmation e-mail will be sent to your MVCC Student E-Mail.  Be sure to check it regularly.

Step 6: Soon after you submit your deposit, we will schedule you to participate in a STAR (Student Testing, Advisement and Registration) program to be held in the mid summer.  During this program, you will be able to spend the night in the Residence Halls, take your Placement Test, if required, meet with an adviser and schedule your classes - ALL IN ONE TRIP! There are also great programs for your parents, guardians or other supporters.  Be sure to watch your mail for your invitation to the great program.
