The community and student resources provided really do set all students up for success; the people running the resource centers are very encouraging and welcoming, allowing students to actually put those resources to use. Every professor I've had has been very kind, knowledgeable, helpful and encouraging across the board as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I really do not hold any major complaints about PVCC and truly just encourage anyone to see what this school has to offer and hope that it can provide you with something that advances you in life. I do wish there was a stronger variety of in-person classes offered for my own learning preferences, but that really comes down to having a smaller audience for what I am looking for.

Being at PVCC, there is a great sense of diversity. I have been attending since the Fall of 2018, and during mid-2019 I shifted to full Online courses. The process itself was easy to deal with, and there were a good amount of online course options that I was able to choose from.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

One tip I would give to all students who currently attend PVCC or will attend PVCC in the future is this: If you know that your degree requires courses (classes) outside of PVCC (with other MCCCD colleges) try to take those first! Use a consortium agreement (which helps you with using Financial Aid from your main school - in this case, PVCC if you attend -- and you won't have to pay out of pocket. Your FA processes the classes needed). With this tip, KEEP IN MIND that your other Maricopa college grades STAY at those colleges-- they do not transfer to your overall degree. Those grades and GPAs REMAIN in the other colleges you may have to attend.

The school is great, there are no dorms obviously because it is a community college but their science center is the absolute best as well as the teachers that are in the life science building.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

To reach out to advisors before you start your classes and before you sign up for classes, especially if you're looking into nursing.
