The Virtual College of Texas (VCT) is a collaborative of accredited public Texas community colleges. It functions as a service of the Texas Association of Community Colleges. Through the VCT, students may take courses from colleges anywhere in Texas. Panola College (PC) participates as both a host and a provider college.
The majority of Panola College's involvement in the VCT is in the role of a provider college.
As a provider college PC:
- Provides instruction for a variety of courses and defines course content and instructional methodologies;
- Directs all class activities, including assignments and tests, and awards final grades;
- Establishes the academic calendar for courses it offers through the VCT;
- Provides online book ordering at the College Store.
Students interested in PC courses through the VCT should contact the VCT coordinator at their own institution for reservation information.
