The New Jersey Community College Consortium 

 

The consortium
offers courses using a provider-host system:

  • New Jersey's
    community colleges provide (share)
    some of their online courses with the consortium. Other colleges
    in the consortium can
    host these courses - that is, offer these
    provided courses to their students as if they were their own.
  • For students currently enrolled in one of New Jersey's community
    colleges, this system allows you to take courses from another college
    without the hassle of having to register at that school. Credits
    earned this way go directly on your college transcript. Transferring
    credits is not necessary. You can also register for NJVCCC courses
    directly through your college - the same way and at the same time
    you register for other courses.
  • If you are
    not now enrolled in a New Jersey community college, there
    are still benefits to taking a course through the consortium.  NJVCCC
    offers a variety of courses in many subjects. All courses
    offered through NJVCCC cost $90 per credit no matter where
    you live, in-state or out-of-state. All NJVCCC courses are
    offered by accredited institutions and can be transferred
    to colleges and universities throughout the country. Also,
    all NJVCCC courses are offered Online, so you can attend
    on you schedule. NJVCCC courses provide come with the "high-touch" services
    students you expect from a local community college,
    such as tutoring, advisement, and counseling.

DELIVERY
MEDIA

All NJVCCC courses are offered using
the Internet. Students enrolled in NJVCCC courses correspond with
professors via e-mail, bulletin boards, and the World Wide Web.
Online courses require a computer with a graphical user interface
(Mac or Windows), a modem (28.8 kbps or higher), and connection
to an Internet Service Provider (ISP), and students need to know
how to download software from the Internet and install and configure software.
