Student Life

What is Student Life? Student Life is the living and learning that takes place outside of the classroom, and it’s a big part of your college experience. It includes service, leadership, friendships and that hard-to-define essence that makes college more than a collection of courses or buildings.

Those involved in student groups or volunteering in the community can attest to the satisfaction they experience. By combining the skills you learn through co-curricular involvement and your classwork, you will be better prepared to enjoy college, develop your potential and get that job.

So join a club. Be a student government leader. Keep abreast of performing arts and lecture series. Just hang out with other students and staff at the Student Life Office.

Student Life can help with all of these, and more.

Cedar Valley offers a variety of culturally diverse programs and services to help get you involved in campus life and provide you an opportunity to see, hear, and meet artists, musicians, writers, performers and motivational speakers.

Do I need to get a CVC ID Card?

The Cedar Valley College (CVC) Identification Card is the official college identification throughout your entire enrollment. Please also note that a Student ID card is required for qualifying students to receive the DART Student GoPass. This card is mandatory and must be presented to secure campus services and privileges. First-time cards and card validations are issued during registration period for all new and returning students. Students may obtain ID cards during registration or from the Office of Student Life, Room D101, after registration ends.

Students must present their paid fee receipts and photo ID to obtain their student ID card. Duplicate fee receipts are available at no additional cost from the Business office. There will be a non-refundable replacement fee of ten dollars ($10) for a card that is lost, stolen, or for those who have had a name change, or would prefer another photo. All fees for identification cards should be paid at the Business Cashier located in Building L. The student identification card is nontransferable and becomes invalid if the student withdraws from college before the end of the semester. The use of the card may be restricted or suspended for any student that does not abide by the Student Code of Conduct. The card is the property of Cedar Valley College and will be shown or surrendered as requested by a college official.
