We Support MVC's Learning Environment

Welcome to the Office of Instruction. We help students with accessing a wide range of academic services, from course repetition and academic renewal to simply finding their way to class, and support MVC's faculty and classified professionals to ensure a healthy, productive learning environment.


The mission of the Office of Instruction is to support student learning, faculty teaching and oversight of courses, programs, and areas of emphasis. The office also addresses student concerns and assists students by providing information regarding academic procedures.
