VCT Services


Inter-institutional Sharing of Courses

VCT was charged at inception to facilitate sharing of individual distance learning courses among Texas two-year community colleges. Since becoming operational in the Fall Semester 1998, community colleges' collaborative sharing of courses through VCT has resulted in approximately—

  • 68,230 discrete course enrollments, and

  • 48,608 individual students served in individual semesters (Fall 1998 - Fall 2014).

The map to the right shows the inter-institutional, collaborative course sharing that took place through VCT in the 2013-2014 academic year. Each connective line represents one or more students who got the courses they needed at the point they needed them, making it possible for them to stay on track with their educational plans.

The inter-institutional sharing indicated takes place under the terms of VCT's Host-Provider Model (PDF) developed by the Texas Association of Community Colleges (opens new window).
