MVC's tuition is established on a per-unit basis, and varies depending on how many classes you take. Additional service fees apply, and non-residents (people who live outside of California or the United States) must pay additional fees. Some courses also have material or certification fees.  

MVC encourages all students to apply for financial aid, which includes federal and state direct aid, scholarships, grants and other assistance, to help make college costs affordable.
