The Mississippi Virtual Community College (MSVCC) is a consortium of Mississippi's 15 community colleges that makes it possible for these colleges to leverage their distance learning resources -- including faculty, courses, support services, and technology. Through the MSVCC, students may take courses from community colleges anywhere in Mississippi while getting support services from a local college. To take a course from a remote (provider) college, a student enrolls at a local (host) community college. The host college supports the student with a full slate of student services, including advisement and counseling, financial aid, and learning resources. The host college awards credit for the course. The remote (provider) college provides the course instruction.
History and Accreditation
The beginnings of the Mississippi Virtual Community College (MSVCC) can be traced back to the mid 1990’s when advanced internet and video conferencing technologies began to emerge within the public two-year institutions of the state. After extensive research and planning between 1997 – 1999, the MSVCC became a reality in January 2000 with its initial course offerings and a duplicated enrollment of 1,382.
