Cooperative Programs & Services
This is a cooperative effort among the following Mohawk Valley colleges: Hamilton College, Herkimer County Community College, Empire State College at Utica, Mohawk Valley Community College, SUNY Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome, SUNY Morrisville, and Utica College.
Full–time matriculated students may be eligible to take selected courses (one per term) at other member institutions. Selected courses must be applicable to the student’s degree program, and must not be available on the student’s home campus during the term of registration. Registrations will be processed on a space–available basis, after all home campus students have had an opportunity to register for the course. Students must follow policies, procedures, and calendars of both the home and host institution. Approval of the appropriate home campus official is required. Other restrictions, including course prerequisites and special fees, may apply. Consortium cross registration is not available for summer courses. For additional information, contact the MVCC Registration’s Office.
MVCC has been designated as an institutional member of Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC), a group of over 400 colleges and universities providing voluntary post-secondary education to members of the military throughout the world. As an SOC member, MVCC recognizes the unique nature of the military life-style and has committed itself to easing the transfer of relevant course credits, providing flexible academic residency requirements, and crediting learning from appropriate military training and experiences.
SOC has been developed jointly by educational representatives of each of the Armed Services, the Office of the Secretary of Defense and a consortium of 13 leading national higher education associations. It is sponsored by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges (AACJC). Further information may be obtained by contacting the MVCC Admissions Office.
MVCC has joined the United States Army and over 600 Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges across the country in the Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAp). The program allows new recruits, who enlist in the Army or the Army Reserves, to enroll in a college or university at the time of their enlistment. These soldiers earn money toward college through the Montgomery G.I. Bill for educational benefits, and are guaranteed admission at a selected college up to two years after completion of active military service.
Eligible students are permitted to take as little as 25% of their courses in residence at MVCC, with the remaining credits available through transfer, independent or correspondence classes and credit for specialized training or life experience. MVCC will provide ConAp students with counseling and with program planning assistance and evaluation. For more information about the program, contact MVCC Veterans' Office, telephone (315) 792-5502.
MVCC offers either U.S. Army or U.S. Air Force ROTC through Syracuse University. Students travel to Syracuse to participate in Military Science classes and Leadership Labs one afternoon per week.
