VCT: Virtual College of Texas

 

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!

Please review the student handbook about online courses. 

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 at 409-944-1324, to request a seat reservation in the class. The Distance Education Coordinator 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.
