For students who wish to enroll as “visiting” students to take a class for transfer back to a “home” college or university
For students who wish to enroll as “visiting” students, please consider the following important information:
- A CVCC GPA does not “transfer” to your home institution. Colleges/universities may issue course credit, but a CVCC GPA will NOT be calculated into another school’s GPA.
- If students earned grades of “D” or “F” in a course at their home school, repeating that equivalent course at CVCC will NOT result in a grade replacement at the home school. If a grade replacement is desired, a student should repeat the course at the school where the “D” or “F” was earned.
- CVCC is not responsible for transfer credit to a student’s home school. To avoid disappointment, it is wise for visiting students to have their home school’s advance approval before enrolling in CVCC. Visiting students are not assigned a CVCC Academic Advisor.
- Visiting students should take no more than 2 Intersession or 3 Summer courses at one time.
- CVCC needs to see an unofficial transcript from the actual school where a student took a prerequisite. Transcripts must reflect grades of “A”, “B” or “C”. A grade of “TR” necessitates the need for a student to provide an unofficial transcript from the school where that particular course(s) was taken.
- Visiting students should be prepared to bear all expenses associated with registration; non visiting students are not eligible for financial aid from CVCC.

Online math courses require students to come to campus with a photo ID to take the midterm and final exams. Students unable to come to campus during the drop in exam session may select an authorized Testing Center at another institution for proctoring. There may be fees associated with another school’s test proctoring services.
