The staff is very friendly, helpful and dedicated to solving any problems or questions you may have. I enrolled under a different program director that changed the majority of the policies between my enrolling and start date and wasn't notified but now they keep me in the loop and answer any question or concern. They are willing to work with you every step of the way. They treat you like family.

San Joaquin Valley College is one school to go to if you are a hands on learn. Their staff and instructors are very outstanding when in need of help. Student life there is just amazing. I'm glad i made the decision to attend sjvc without them i wouldn't have the job i have now. Being there made me want to continue my education and become a veterinarian.
My experience with SJVC was absolutely wonderful, all the staff there really care about you and helping you any way they can from getting up enrolled to helping with paperwork and even sticking out your time there as a student there, you can always relay on them for help or any advice you may need.
