Admission to Valley View University (VVU) is available to any applicant who meets the academic and character reference requirements of the University and is willing to co-operate with the University’s policies. Valley View University is owned, sponsored, and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. However, no particular religious commitment is required for admission; any applicant who will be comfortable within its religious, social, and cultural atmosphere may seek admission and be admitted. However, admission to the University is a privilege but not a right, and may be withheld or withdrawn by the University at its discretion and in harmony with its regulations and policies.
The University does not discriminate on grounds of race, colour, creed, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, or marital status. All that is required from any prospective and admitted student is to bear in mind that Valley View University is an integral part of the teaching ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and as such, it expects students (and employees) to uphold biblical principles of morality and deportment as interpreted by the Church.
Audio-visual includes all forms of recorded materials (reel, cassette, video, etc), photographic films (motion pictures, film strips, slides, etc), and any other related electronic media. The audio visual materials can be found in the Walton Whaley Library and the Harold Lee Library.
