   Since first opening our doors in 1961, Victor Valley College has strived to serve our students by offering excellence in higher education. The college is always looking forward with new and innovative programs, facilities, and services to improve our institution and the student experience. VVC provides extensive students support services, and everything you need to get started can be found in our beautiful new student services building, truly a one-stop location for things such as admissions, financial aid, counseling, and many other resources.

Whether you are a first-year student in one of our transfer degree programs or enrolled in one of our many career and vocational programs, we are here to assist you in your journey.  We believe that education is the foundation to building strong families, resilient communities, and a skilled workforce. We want you to appreciate our quality academic programs, but we also encourage you to become involved in one or more of our student clubs each intended to expose you to formal and informal forums for areas of special interest. You are also encouraged to be active in your student government which is an integral part of the College’s participatory governance process.

Rest assured that we are here to offer you the best in academic and support services, and we expect your best efforts in and out of the classroom.  Working together we can make your dream of a college education come true.
