Create a Mix that Works for You!

Taking traditional face-to-face classes at VHCC, but can’t fit all the class times into your schedule? Try adding some distance learning classes. Many of VHCC’s distance learners live in the region and take traditional classes on our campus. So… whether your goal is to take everything online or to create some flexibility in an already packed schedule… distance learning can help.
