MVNU Services for Student Success

We want to see you reach your highest potential at MVNU. Check out the offices that will journey with you to help you set and achieve academic, vocational, and personal goals.

Nease Institute

This summer bridge program + first-year experience offers incoming freshmen the opportunity to prepare for the transition to college and develop important skills for college success. It starts before the fall semester and introduces you to the college experience and strengthens your academic skills because you’ll complete a college-level one-credit course during the Institute.

Apply if you:

  • have a high school GPA below a 2 .95,
  • an ACT composite score of 21 or less, 
  • or you’re a first-generation college student

Accessibility Services

The Office of Accessibility Services’ mission is to facilitate equal access to all institutional opportunities for students who self-disclose documented disabilities and to foster a campus environment that is accessible, inclusive, and regulatorily compliant.

Students who request accommodations for disabilities must personally meet with the Coordinator of Accessibility Services to complete the process of registration. Students in the GPS programs or online courses will be able to discuss needs by telephone conversation.

Test Center

On the third floor of the Thorne Library and Learning Resource Center, you’ll find a quiet, classroom-like testing environment. This can also be used for distance learning or make-up examinations, which can be administered securely according to instructor's guidelines.

  • Accessibility services
