California Virtual Campus (CVC) Exchange

The CVC Exchange allows students currently enrolled in a at least one course at a California Community College to instantly enroll in online courses offered at eligible colleges. This gives you the ability enroll into courses that may not be available at your college so you can achieve your goals faster without having to move around to different colleges.

Compton College is participating in the exchange this fall, under two categories:

Home College: The California Community College from which a student enters the CVC Exchange to take courses through other colleges.

Teaching College: College that offers courses via the CVC Exchange to students from other participating colleges.


Only students enrolled in at least one credit course at participating colleges are eligible to cross enroll. Students must also meet the following requirements:

  • Have at least a 2.0 GPA or not yet established a GPA at the Home College.
  • Have no outstanding fees at the Home College.
  • No out of state address on file at Home College.

Where to find courses?

You can find course listings on the California Virtual Campus Website.
