Frequently Asked Questions


Special programs are initiatives to help students and encourage our community. While some are available to all students, like student health services, others are specific to individual groups of students with identified needs that can be addressed.

Learn more about each program to find out how it specifically helps. Most special programs are focused on helping with education by providing financial, study, guidance or other forms of support. Other special programs offer an avenue for individuals to “find their tribe”, share ideas, identity and celebrate what makes them unique.

The first step is always ask questions and learn about the program/group. Each has a dedicated webpage on the MVC website that you can review, you can attend a meeting or workshop (if offered) or reach out by email, phone or in-person. How involved you get after that is up to you!
