About the CVC

Welcome to the California Virtual Campus (CVC)! The CVC was established in 2013 by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) as a grant to the Foothill-De Anza Community College District  to help more students complete their educational goals.

Mission & Vision

The CVC leads and supports California Community Colleges to offer inclusive, high-quality online courses and programs that accelerate students’ paths to completion. By leveraging accessible and student-centered technology, programs and services the CVC equitizes online education for all.


Since our inception, CVC has played a crucial role in transforming online education in California, resulting in:

  • A systemwide course-sharing platform, the CVC Exchange, that enables thousands of students to easily find and enroll in online courses.
  • A common Course Management System (Canvas) used at all 115 community colleges.
  • Increased student enrollment and retention in online courses.
  • Enhanced access to online courses for underserved and remote communities.
  • Access to systemwide digital technologies through the STAC ordering process.
  • Professional development through CVC@ONE and extensive selections of webinars, courses, certificates programs and peer review frameworks.


Formed in April 2014, the CVC Advisory Committee provides guidance and recommendations on policies and procedures to the CVC management team. Members of the committee are appointed by constituent organizations that represent faculty, staff, administrators and students at the statewide level and also includes ex-officio participants from the CCCCO. Members represent the diversity of college constituencies and functions within the California Community Colleges (CCC).

"In an increasingly digital world, quality online education stands as a beacon of innovation, offering flexible, personalized learning experiences that support diverse student needs and empower lifelong learning"​
