Final date to submit work for Semester 1

The last day to hand in overdue work is January 14th at noon. Students who have independent study units (ISU) or culminating tasks may have deadlines after this date and must adhere to those deadlines.

 

Proctorio Reminders

We will be using proctorio for our exams. Students have access to a sample test that they can complete as many times as they like prior to the exams. We highly recommend that students complete the sample exam an hour prior to the start of each exam to ensure that their computer is working properly. Below is a link to some common troubleshooting tips with Proctorio.

If a student does not have the camera showing them during the exam they will receive a mark of zero and forfeit the credit.

On Monday, February 7th at 7:30 am students will be able to access all of their courses. We will begin classes on Monday, February 7th so students who are scheduled for Monday classes should be prepared to log in at the scheduled time.

Exams / Final Tests

Exams and final tests will be proceeding for semester 1 as scheduled. Students were sent a copy of their exam schedule by email. If this email has been misplaced they can access it by logging into their Student Profile from either the Student Guide or our website.

2022-23 Registration

We are in the early stages of planning our 2022-23 school year registration. As always any existing VLC students will have the first opportunity to register for the upcoming school year. More information will be made available on our website as we get closer to registration which will open mid to late March 2022.

Semester 2 Waitlists

Semester 2 courses are very full at this time, however, if spaces become available we will be placing students on waitlists into courses up until February 11th. After this date, students who are on waitlists will be removed.
