The California Virtual Campus (CVC) Course Exchange allows students currently enrolled in a at least one course at a California Community College to instantly enroll in online courses offered at eligible colleges. This gives you the ability enroll into courses that may not be available at your college so you can achieve your goals faster without having to move around to different colleges.
Below are a few definitions you should be aware of :
Home College: The California Community College from which a student enters 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.
Only students enrolled in at least one credit course at participating colleges are eligible to cross enroll. Students must also meet the following requirements:
- Have at least a 2.0 GPA or not yet established a GPA at the Home College.
- Have no outstanding fees at your Home College.
- No out-of-state address on file at Home College.
You can find course listings on the California Virtual Campus Website. For assistance with registering for the right course, please make an appointment with a Rio Hondo College counselor (for Rio Hondo College Students). If you are a student visiting the college, you should make an appointment with a counselor at your home college for assistance.
Courses will appear in your Home College’s Canvas instance. If you do not see the course you are registered for you will need to contact the Teaching College where the class is being held for assistance with accessing the course.
