Admission to the College does not ensure enrollment in all courses or programs. Many courses have prerequisite requirements and some programs have specific eligibility requirements. To help ensure your success, we may ask that you take developmental or remedial courses. But don't let that possibility deter you! Talk with a counselor and find out about the program you are interested in. If you are undecided as to a course of study, a counselor can help you choose meaningful courses that count toward a degree or transfer program.
Kalamazoo Valley Community College does not provide student housing. All students must arrange for their own housing. A good source of information about rental housing (apartments) in Kalamazoo is MLive.com . Or you may want to try apartments.com
