School Overview

Established in 1966 as a part of the Virginia Community College system, Central Virginia Community College (CVCC) is a two-year public institution of higher education, located in the city of Lynchburg, Virginia. In addition to the main campus in Lynchburg, CVCC operates off-site centers in Amherst, Appomattox, and Bedford. The school is approved to award associate’s degrees, diplomas, and certificates, and organizes academic programs into three divisions:

  • Business and Allied Health
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Science, Math and Engineering

Students at Central Virginia Community College can earn an Associate in Arts and Sciences degree in General Studies or Business Administration completely online.

Online degree programs provide a means for students to complete their associate’s degree with the intent to transfer into a four-year program. In addition, online classes are offered in more than 6,000 credit and non-credit courses. E-learning includes courses hosted through Blackboard Collaborate, web-based courses, and hybrid classes. Blackboard Collaborate features synchronous sessions, whereby students login at a set time and day, and participate in virtual class sessions. Asynchronous web-based courses are hosted on Blackboard but do not require set meeting times. Hybrid courses combine face-to-face meetings with supplemental online assignments.
