VGCC new Buy One, Get One Free summer course offerings


Vance-Granville Community College has a new Buy One, Get One Free summer enrollment initiative for in-state credit and non-credit students who want to take summer classes online. Students must register by Friday, May 8 to qualify.

Current students will need to register now to take advantage of this opportunity. Prospective students will need to apply and then register for summer online classes. You are encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity. The students will pay for one three credit hour online course and then have the ability to add an additional course for free. We recognize that we have a number of students and prospective students who want to work towards completing their certificate, diploma or degree in an expedited manner. Or, they are seeking to retool and retrain amidst the pandemic. VGCC is being creative when thinking about the current and future needs of its students.

This incentivized enrollment is limited to one additional course per credit or non-credit student and covers tuition and fees. Those who are interested must take the course during the Summer of 2020. Summer is just underway at VGCC and it is not too late to register. Come grow with us!! You may visit to find course offerings for this summer. The summer credit term begins on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 and the non-credit registration is ongoing.
