Founded in 1946 as the New York State Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences at Utica, MVCC was one of five post-secondary institutions established on an experimental basis after World War II.

  • Provides scholarship information and available community resources.
  • Provides assistance in applying for federal and state financial aid.
