Outreach events scheduled for spring and summer

Community members can again take advantage of hands-on assistance completing their application and enrolling in classes during Yakima Valley College’s Express Enrollment Days starting in June.

Last year, Express Enrollment Days on the Yakima and Grandview campuses drew more than 200 community members looking to begin their degree or certificate at YVC.

“We had very positive feedback from those who participated in Express Enrollment Days last year,” said Pedro Navarrete, assistant dean of the Grandview Campus. “People appreciated getting one-on-one help taking care of all the steps they need to get started at YVC. From completing your application for admission to applying for student aid to exploring academic pathways with an advisor, you can take care of everything at the same time during one of our Express Enrollment Days.”

No appointment is necessary to take part in YVC’s Express Enrollment Days, which will take place the following dates.
