MVC Online

The Missouri Valley College Distance Learning Service Program mission is to extend access to higher education through a web-based delivery of courses to students of all educational and economic backgrounds overcoming the barriers of location and time.

MVC Online provides an accredited, flexible, and convenient selection of undergraduate courses including two baccalaureate degree programs. Online courses at Missouri Valley are asynchronous, requiring no face-to-face meetings on campus. All students are eligible to enroll in online courses, although "online student" refers to those enrolled exclusively in online courses. The learning platform for web-based delivery of all online courses at Missouri Valley is Moodle.

The Bachelor in Psychology and the Bachelor of Management - Entrepreneurship Concentration degrees at Missouri Valley can be completed exclusively online. The online course schedule regularly offers a variety of options in the General Education Core areas, with at least one course from each Core area offered on a rotating schedule. This flexible schedule provides an opportunity for students of any major to enroll in one or more courses online. Summer term is a popular choice for many students, while Fall and Spring are more popular for Dual Credit Program students.

Occasionally an online course requires an exam to be proctored. Securing and paying the associated costs, if any, is the responsibility of the student. Those students who wish to travel to the Missouri Valley College campus may schedule a time to have their exam proctored in the Learning Center during normal operating hours free of charge.

Missouri Valley College is a member of NC-SARA (National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements) and is therefore authorized to offer distance education to students located in member states and US Territories. Missouri Valley College may not provide education to students who are located outside of one of the member states. (According to NC-SARA "location is the state where the student is located while receiving the instruction and does not refer to the student's official state of residence.")
