The Virtual College of Texas (VCT), a consortium of all accredited, public community and technical colleges in the state, enables sharing of distance learning resources to maximize student access. By enrolling in a local college, students may take courses provided by other colleges throughout Texas, while receiving support services from the local institution. If Galveston College does not offer a specific course when needed, visit the VCT Web site at http://www.vct.org/ to view a list of classes available through VCT. The VCT website also describes a host-provider model on which the VCT system is based.
NOTE: GALVESTON COLLEGE STUDENTS CAN RESERVE A COURSE THROUGH ANY COLLEGE THAT IS A MEMBER OF VCT WITH PERMISSION FROM THE GALVESTON COLLEGE VICE-PRESIDENT OF INSTRUCTION.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS!
There are two (2) steps that you must complete in order to be officially enrolled in a VCT course: (1) Reservation and (2) Registration.
Reservations: Contact the Distance Education Coordinator Patricia Reyes at 409-944-1324, to request a seat reservation in the class. Patricia will check to ensure that the class in which you are interested is available through VCT and that a seat is available. If it is, she will enter your information into the reservation system, reserve your seat and give you a Galveston College call number/section number for the course.
Registration: Once your seat is reserved, you will be registered in the course through Galveston College's normal registration system.
All VCT students are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to attend a Distance Learning Orientation session, offered regularly by the Galveston College Distance Learning staff. Please contact Patricia Reyes for additional information.
