            going to College is Different Than High School
                                                    HigH SCHOOl
RESPONSIBILITY
•       Your time is structured by others .
•       You need permission to participate in extracurricular activities .
•       Guiding principle: You will usually be told what to do and corrected if your behavior is out of line .
CLASSES
•       You may study outside class as little as 0 to 2 hours a week, and this may be mostly last-minute test
        preparation .
•       You seldom need to read anything more than once, and sometimes listening in class is enough .
•       You are expected to read short assignments that are then discussed, and often re-taught, in class .
INSTRUCTION
•       Teachers carefully monitor class attendance .
•       Teachers provide you with information you missed when you were absent .
•       Teachers remind you of your incomplete work .
TESTS
•       Testing is frequent and covers small amounts of material .
•       Makeup tests are often available .
•       Teachers frequently conduct review sessions, pointing out the most important concepts .
GRADES
•       Consistently good homework grades may raise your overall grade when test grades are low .
•       Initial test grades, especially when they are low, may not have an adverse effect on your final grade.
•       You may graduate as long as you have passed all required courses with a grade of D or higher .



                                                        COllege
RESPONSIBILITY
•       You manage your own time .
•       You must decide whether to participate in co-curricular activities .
•       Guiding principle: You are expected to take responsibility for what you do and don’t do, as well as for the
        consequences of your decisions .
CLASSES
•       You need to study at least 2 to 3 hours outside of class for each hour in class .
•       You need to review class notes and text material regularly .
•       You are assigned substantial amounts of reading and writing which may not be directly addressed in class .
INSTRUCTION
•       Professors may not formally take roll, but they are still likely to know whether or not you attended .
•       Professors expect you to get from classmates any notes from classes you missed .
•       Professors may not remind you of incomplete work .
TESTS
•       Testing is usually infrequent and may be cumulative, covering large amounts of material . You, not the
        professor, need to organize the material to prepare for the test . A particular course may have only 2 or 3 tests
        in a semester .
•       Makeup tests are seldom an option; if they are, you need to request them .
•       Professors rarely offer review sessions, and when they do, they expect you to be an active participant, one
        who comes prepared with questions .
GRADES
•       Grades on tests and major papers usually provide most of the course grade .
•       Watch out for your first tests. These are usually “wake-up" calls: to let you know what is expected--but they also
        may account for a substantial part of your course grade . You may be shocked when you get your grades .
•       You may graduate only if your average in classes meets the departmental standard - typically a 2 .0 or C .

                               Reading the Class Schedule
After you have given some thought to the number and types of classes you would like to take, you are ready to organize
your first semester of classes using the Class Schedule which is published online for fall, winter, spring, and summer. It
is important to note that classes may vary in length . Some courses are offered off campus, and evening courses are
designated by bold print . If you enroll in a “day” class, you must enroll in a “day” lab (when one is required .)

            “Building Dreams Together”                                           Title IV School
                                                                                 code is 041735
HERE’S WHAT’S NEW IN FINANCIAL AID…
Grant and Loan Disbursements will now be disbursed on a “Sallie Mae Debit Master Card® .” For more
information visit our website www.mvc.edu/sfs .

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS (SAP)
Qualitative Standard: All students at Riverside Community College District (RCCD) must have a
Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2 .0 . Quantitative Standard: All students must complete a
certain percentage of units attempted in order to make progress toward their goal . There are two
parts to this standard: 1) Pace of progression: Students must complete at least 67%
of the cumulative units attempted. If you are unable to finish your program
within the maximum time frame, as explained below, you may lose eligibility
for Title IV aid . 2) Maximum Time Frame: Students must also complete their
educational objective (graduation, transfer or certificate) by the time they
have attempted 90 units . This includes ALL units attempted at RCCD . A
student can only receive financial assistance for a maximum of 150% of the
published length of the program . 60 units is the standard for completion of
many of the programs at RCCD . Thus, 90 units is the maximum for which a
student can receive financial assistance (60 units X 150% = 90 units). The
90 unit maximum includes one change of academic program .
Evaluation: All students will be evaluated at the end of each
semester to determine if they are meeting the standards
listed above, beginning with the Fall 2011 semester .

*If you have attempted less than 12 units at RCCD, then
you will be required to maintain a 1 .5 Cumulative GPA
and must complete 50% of the courses you attempt to
maintain SAP . Once you have attempted 12 or more
units, you will be held to the standard as explained above .

Maximum Time Frame
for Pell Grant Recipients
New Regulation:
Effective July 1, 2012, students will be eligible to receive
a Federal Pell Grant for up to 12 semesters of scheduled awards
(at full time) . This will generally equal 4-6 years of undergraduate
enrollment . A student who attends a semester as a half-time
student is "counted" as having used only half a semester for
purposes of tracking the Pell grant limit .

What does this mean to you as a financial aid student?
After receiving Pell grants for 12 semesters of full-time enrollment,
you will no longer be eligible to receive the Pell grant . You will
have to plan out your undergraduate enrollment to ensure that
you can complete your educational objective prior to meeting
the maximum time frame for Pell Grant payment .
More information will be available from the Department of
Education soon regarding how to find out how much of your
grant eligibility you have already used . This new regulation will
apply to all students' past grant payment history .

                                               Assessment

Assessment	
Test at MVC!
We want to help ensure our students
choose appropriate coursework,
especially when they are just starting
out . The Matriculation process exists
to help students make better, more
informed     educational       choices
that will help them achieve their
educational goals in a timely
manner . As part of the Matriculation
process, the assessment test is an
important tool to measure student
levels of English, Math and Reading .
The results of the test plus other
academic background information
produce a placement which will
give students and counselors an
indication of each student's starting points in these subjects . It is important to follow your placements because many
of them include prerequisite courses you must take before you can be admitted to more advanced classes . These
prerequisites are strictly enforced .

Most new students must take the Accuplacer test for placement into English, math, and reading courses, or the PTESL
(Proficiency Test in English as a Second Language) for placement into ESL courses. Some returning students and
students transferring to MVC from another college may need to test as well (consult a counselor) .

Placement tests are available by appointment only . Appointments may only be made at your home college location .
Therefore, students must receive their student services (such as assessment and counseling) at their self-chosen home
college . (You chose a home college when you submitted your online admissions application .) For your convenience,
an appointment may be made online at www.mvc.edu/assessment/ or in person at the Assessment Center located
on the first floor of the Student Services Building room 107. Please visit our website to find our hours of operation.

Moreno Valley College has two locations where students may take their Assessment test . Students may take tests at
the Moreno Valley College or MVC Ben Clark Assessment Center located at the Ben Clark Training Center . To see
when the Assessment Centers are offering tests, please visit www.mvcsp.com/assessment/.

Students are required to present photo identification in order to test; a state or federal issued driver’s license or ID
is preferred, but passports and high school ID are also acceptable . In order to preserve a comfortable and quiet
testing environment, only students taking the test can remain in the Assessment Center .

Assessment tests are meant to be a one-time only assessment of your skills and abilities upon your initial entry into the
college . You can learn more about the Assessment Test and get helpful tips to help you prepare for the test at www .
mvc.edu/assessment/prep.cfm. If none of the above answers your questions, you can call us at (951) 571-6492.

     STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math)
                            STEM is a support service for students interested in pursuing fields in Science,
                            Technology, Engineering and Math. This also includes some health fields
                            such as RN, Physician Assistant, and Dental Hygiene .

                            What is the STEM Student Success Center (SSSC)?
                            The STEM Student Success Center at MVC provides academic support in a
                            social learning environment. It is 100% funded through the U.S. Department
