Parking and Other Back-To-School Information
Welcome to the spring semester! We would like to share some key information with you.
PARKING — We encourage you to arrive at least 30 minutes before your first class to find parking and locate your classroom. You do not need a parking sticker. Public transportation also is available. These Pace bus routes serve Moraine Valley every weekday: Route 379 (Midway-Orland Square), Route 381 (95th Street), Route 385 (87th Street/111th Street/127th Street), and Route 595 (Tinley Park Call-n-Ride). The bus stop at the main campus is in front of Buildings S and U. Bus passes are sold in the Cashier’s Office in Building S.
MVCONNECT — MVConnect is a portal that allows students easy access to a searchable class schedule, registration, financial aid information, student email, tuition payment details, news, and more.
BOOKSTORE — The Bookstore (Building D) gives away $50 gift certificates every hour during the first week of classes, beginning Jan. 12. Scratch-off cards with every purchase allow lucky students to get their entire purchase/textbooks for free, plus chances to win 10 percent off and other great prizes. Enjoy free popcorn, too.
ACTIVITIES — Enjoy free activities and snacks at Welcome Days Jan. 13 and 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Building U and Spring Fest April 22 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. outside in the quad near Building U. The Health, Fitness & Recreation Center is free for full-time students; part-time students and community residents may join for affordable rates. The center has a gym, pool, exercise equipment, intramurals, classes, and more. Stay up-to-date on college events and happenings on the website and social media.
COMMUNICATION — You will need to use your Moraine Valley email account for all of your email communication with college faculty and staff. We will only use your student email to communicate important information to you. We also urge you to sign up for emergency mobile alerts. By doing so, you will be able to quickly get college emergency information, such as closures for snow days.
STUDENT POLICIES — Become familiar with college policies, including the Student Code of Conduct. Consistent with the college’s mission, students are expected to govern themselves and demonstrate appropriate behavior with an emphasis on self-respect and respect for others.
FOR MORE INFORMATION — Visit the college’s website for course information, details about programs and services available to you, and campus happenings. If you have any questions, call (708) 974-4300, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the Information Desk in Building S. The faculty and staff at Moraine Valley look forward to serving you. Have a great semester!
