Catastrophic Events Planning
Vance-Granville Community College (VGCC) is committed to offering quality educational programs in all delivery methodologies. Distance learning (i.e., online and hybrid learning environments) provides unique challenges and opportunities to serve students. To this end, VGCC complies with the Higher Education Opportunity Act and the Interregional Guidelines for the Evaluation of Distance Education standards for quality online courses, as well as Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) guidelines for reporting of distance education. VGCC will secure authorization from states that require educational institutions to be legally authorized in their state prior to offering online/ distance education programs/courses to students residing in that state. Authorization must be secured for both curriculum and continuing education students. Authorization must be secured for faculty who teach online. All distance, hybrid, and online courses must be coordinated through the VGCC Center for Teaching and Learning prior to delivery. All academic departments are responsible for being knowledgeable and following VGCC’s Program Development and Review Policy as well.
