Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.17 Average Rating
YVCC is a great transition school for students to get used to being in college. They have amazing professors and since class sizes are like that in high school they learn your name and really help you reach your goals for that class. One of the greatest things about YVCC was their free student help centers, you were able to get a tutor that worked around your schedule for no cost at all and it helps tremendously not only with class but also with connecting to other students.

Yakima Valley is a great school. I receive all the help possible from all the sources available such as the writing center and tutoring center. I am glad I chose to go here I couldn't have asked for such amazing professors.
