What is the Virtual College of Texas?


VCT Logo


The Virtual College of Texas (VCT) facilitates the sharing of individual distance learning courses among Texas two-year colleges.  A partnership between Laredo College and VCT allows LC students to enroll in an online course offered by another college in Texas.


VCT features a wide array of college credit courses that are listed at www.vct.org.  


The cost to enroll in a VCT course might be higher than for a regular on-campus course.


To enroll in a VCT course, students need to check the availability of a specific course on the VCT website and then contact the eLearning & Instructional Innovation Center at least one month before the advertised start date of the VCT course.
