What is Virtual College?

Virtual College is NTC’s most flexible option. Learn anywhere in the world as long as you can access the internet. At NTC’s Virtual College, classes begin weekly and can be completed on your own schedule with the technology that lets you learn where you live.

Virtual College vs. Traditional Online Courses

The main difference between Virtual College and traditional online courses is that with Virtual College, you set the schedule. Simply login day or night, complete assignments and communicate with your instructor when it’s convenient for you.

Instead of following a set timeline, as you would with traditional online courses, with Virtual College, you can:

  • start when you want
  • go at your own pace
  • set flexible due dates
  • Start when you want: With Virtual College, you can begin your courses right away, or when it’s most convenient for you — even up to 10 weeks into the traditional semester.
  • Go at your own pace: With Virtual College, you can set your pace. You can complete your courses in as few as four weeks or as many as 16 weeks.
  • Set flexible due dates: We understand things come up. With Virtual College, you can adjust your due dates so they’re convenient for you.

In addition, a dedicated advisor is committed to your success, guiding you every step of the way.

One of the reasons I picked the Supervisory Management program was because it was through NTC’s Virtual College. I have two young children and I’m stay at home mom so I can do it in between nap times or whenever it’s convenient for me.
