Antelope Valley Medical College
Lancaster, United States- California


University description (as per official university website)

UAV History

In the winter of 1997, after witnessing what he believed to be too many unnecessary deaths, Los Angeles City Firefighter/Paramedic Marco Johnson, with the blessing of his wife Sandra, began instructing CPR and First Aid courses.

Six months after it's inception, Antelope Valley Medical College (AVMC) received approval from the State of California and the County of Los Angeles to provide training in Emergency Medical Technology.

AVMC was later granted approval to administer instruction in the careers of Medical Assistant, Medical Administrative Assistant, Medical Clinical Assistant, Emergency Room Technician, Paramedic, Nursing Assistant, Medical Billing, Phlebotomy, Administrative Assistant, and Vocational Nursing.

During this time, the facility increased it's size from a 500 square foot starter location to a 45,000 square foot high tech training facility. This facility consists of 20 lecture rooms, student break areas, student lounges, staff lounges, library, career center, menís and womenís restrooms, and computer Labs.

In mid 2003, AVMC acquired an additional satellite classroom: 2997 Desert Road, Suite 6A, Rosamond, CA 93560.

In June 2009, the institution received approval from the United States Department of Education and the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to offer Associates, Bachelors, and Masters degrees. Thus the University of Antelope Valley was established.

The Mission of the University of Antelope Valley (UAV) is to offer higher education to the local community through the delivery of quality career specific certificate, undergraduate, graduate and continuing educational programs.

Education is the key to success, and we are dedicated to making the Antelope Valley a strong community through education by offering our students and community empowerment and success through knowledge.

UAVís recent acquisition of the Antelope Valley Inn, and conversion plans for the property, hopefully demonstrate our personal commitment to the master plan of expanding educational offerings and technology to our community.

We are grateful to many people for their unwavering belief and assistance in founding the UAV, including faculty and staff, city leaders, and members of the community. We would also like to thank the legal, business, and medical community for guidance and leadership.

Financial Aid Services

Prior to enrolling at UAV, all applicants are encouraged to explore the availability of financial aid funding through state and federal agencies. Financial aid information and application assistance is provided by the university's Financial Aid Office to help each student and their families clearly understand their financial situation before entering.

University of Antelope Valley is approved for the following loans and grants:


* William D. Ford Direct Subsidized Loan
* William D. Ford Direct Unsubsidized Loan
* William D. Ford Direct Parent Loan (PLUS)


* Federal Pell Grant
* Supplementary Grant (FSEOG) (subject to availability of funds and financial need)
* Federal Work Study (FWS)(subject to availability of funds and financial need)

Other Agencies or Programs:

* Veterans Administration Benefits
* Department of Rehabilitation Services
* WIA (Workforce Investment Act) I-Train
* Sallie Mae Career Training Loans

In House Financing

Students who receive loans to pay for their course of instruction must realize that it is their responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan, plus interest, less the amount of any refund. Defaulting on loans guaranteed or reinsured by the state or federal government could result in damage to credit ratings, loss of eligibility for future student loans and other forms of financial aid, loss of deferment and monthly payment options, withholding of state and federal income tax refunds, initiation of court action, and garnishment of wages.

Additional information on eligibility requirements, alternate financing, amounts available, interest rates, scholarships, and repayment schedules is available from the Financial Aid Office.

Student Tuition Recovery Fund

The Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) was established by the California Legislature to protect any California resident who attends a private postsecondary institution from losing money they prepaid for tuition and suffering a financial loss as a result of the university closing, failing to live up to its enrollment agreement, or refusing to pay a court judgment.

To be eligible for STRF, you must be a California resident and reside in California at the time the enrollment agreement is signed. Students who are temporarily residing in California for the sole purpose of pursuing an education, specifically those who hold student visas, are not considered California residents.

To qualify for STRF reimbursement you must file a STRF application within one year of receiving notice from the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education that the university is closed. If you do not receive notice from the Bureau, you have four years from the date of closure to file an STRF application. If a judgment is obtained, you must file a STRF application within two years of the final judgment.

It is important that you keep copies of the enrollment agreement, financial aid papers, receipts, or any other information that documents money paid to the university. Questions regarding the STRF may be directed to:

The Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education
1625 N. Market Blvd. Suite S 202
Sacramento, CA 95834
