4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I would really like for them to start Bachelors Degree Courses. Financial Aid Dept is great, but the wait to receive funds of 10 working business days to buy books and gas is a little too long especially for a single mom like me every penny that comes in is important to get through the day. Tuition is great, much cheaper than other school around.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: With the help of the counselors, I was able to choose classes that tend to play hand and hand with each other. My professors challenge me to make the most of my potential. There is a method to the madness, and if u listen and pay attention the professors make things as easy as possible.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: My school is full of people that recognize the gifts in others. We support all of our clubs and athletes religiously.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The overall school experience here has vastly improved.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The library is generally useful. However, there have been a few times that I was turned away because they did not have what I needed.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Since so many people attend this school, resources are not always available for use.

3 College Senior

Student Body: It is a community college so people from all over the Valley attend here. This is not always a good thing but it gives it diversity!

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I have a certificate on fire technology, I really enjoying taking these classes and the chief battalion are very good instructors.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: There are alot of great professors that are willing to take that time during their office hours to helo you out. Sometimes the workload can be overwhelming depending on the teacher and subject you have. Class registration is very stressful.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: There are not many computer labs open to those who have free time, most are reserved to scheduled classes. The network can run really slow at times and there are not many places on the campus that have Wifi available to students.

4 College Student

Campus Resources: Well we are also on a college campus due to it being an Early-College High School; therefore the high school campus just consists of 9 classrooms which are fairly descent. The gym on the college campus is average, we have a new Health & Science Building and a new Theater. Overall the campus is average, but they are currently making improvements so it should be getting better.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid has helped me not only in the moment, but in the long run. Qualifying for financial aid has opened up so many doors for me. I get priority registeration in which allows me to register into the toughest classes at school which makes it easy to finish school.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I do not take very many classes, but from my experiences, I have been fairly successful when registering for classes that fit around my schedule.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have had wonderful instructors every semester that loved what they taught and made me like it as well.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Most teachers are flexible with hard working students.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I find that the academics can be challenging but if you're determined to do well and use campus resources you should be fine. I have learned a lot from all my instructors. Always strive to be the best at whatever you do, not just academics and athletics.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Absolutely loved the pool, learning center, library, computer labs, financial aid office, admissions, counseling office, transfer center, career center, and the Fox Field and Palmdale facilities.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I think the entire faculty and staff at AVC are outstanding. I have utilized all the major resource facilities at the college and have nothing but praise for everyone. I truly enjoy attending AVC and look forward to coming to school every day. Made a lot of good friends too!

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Always complete/update your FAFSA early right after the new year. Always try to follow-up any completed requirements and/or changes online with a visit to the financial aid office so there is no delay in receiving your aid. Last but not least, and it may seem obvious,but always be couteous and respectful to all staff who are trying to help you receive your funds. Do not waste any time completing or following up any requirements. Some full- time students who live on financial aid benefit from submitting all documents as soon as requested and consequently receive their aid on the first disbursement.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: New and excellent computer lab in the Health/Science building. Also the free wireless is excellent but only close to the building. Math lab in the learning center is also outstanding. Faculty and staff are all excellent!

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Classes are extremely difficult to get into even with priority registration.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The campus has great resources for students if they are using the computers on campus. The new email system is inconvenient because all of the class announcements and downloads are on a different website than email.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am not able to obtain financial aid because both of my parents went to college and have full time jobs. I am one of 4 children all going through college on my parents dollar. At AVC there are students who apply for and are granted financial aid but do not stay in classes past the second week when financial aid comes in. The money goes straight into the pockets of people who are not using it for education.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Students are given financial aid but many just wait for that money and then stop attending class. The school is affordable and helps a large portion of students with fees but those students that are only in it for the money take up class spaces that they will only drop later. It is obvious in lower level classes when a month goes by and half the seats are empty. If you are a student that will put the aid to good use then you should not have too many problems however get to the offices as early as possible because the waiting lines can be atrocious.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Its Ok – just think they should verify who really is there for a degree or learning not those who take it and leave soon as they receive it
