How VCT Works:

The Virtual College of Texas (VCT) is a collaboration of Texas community colleges that offer online courses to students who are unable to find needed courses at their home college. VCT operates on a Host-Provider arrangement. The Host is your local community college (TVCC). The Provider is the community college providing the instruction. If you are attending TVCC and the course you need for your degree is not offered online by TVCC, you may be able to reserve a space in that class at another VCT college (Provider).

TVCC will NOT allow or process requests to register for VCT courses if Trinity Valley Community College offers the same course online.
