What is the CVC?
The California Virtual Campus (CVC) (formerly the Online Education Initiative - OEI) is a collaborative effort among California Community Colleges (CCCs) to ensure that more students can complete their educational goals by increasing both access to and success in high-quality online courses. CVC is a digital resource that provides easy access for students to enroll in fully online courses across all 115 brick-and-mortar California Community Colleges (please note, this tool excludes the CCC system’s fully online college, Calbright). It includes a comprehensive catalog of online programs and courses to help students achieve their educational goals.
What is the CVC Exchange?
The CVC Exchange Instant-Enrollment is a system by which students at participating colleges can take fully online courses at another college without completing multiple admissions applications.
- A student must be enrolled in a Home College to participate. Mt. SAC is a Home College!
- Courses at a Teaching College are available for cross-enrollment. Mt. SAC launches as a Teaching College in January 2022!
Home College - College from which students enter the CVC Exchange to take courses through other colleges.
Teaching College - College that offers courses via the CVC Exchange to students from other participating colleges.
The CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric (CDR) establishes standards and best practices relating to course design, interaction and collaboration, assessment, learner support, and accessibility in order to ensure the provision of a high-quality learning environment that promotes student success and conforms to existing regulations. A faculty’s course that has been aligned with the Course Design Rubric is designated “Quality Reviewed."
