The design of the MCCVLC, the Virtual Campus web site, and the services developed by member colleges has been in support of Michigan students who have geographical access to a "Home" college. Serving out of state and international students will require that all student and academic support services be provided at a distance, as visiting a "Home" college will become impractical. Recognizing that some member colleges may choose not to develop such services for out of state and international students immediately, the Virtual Campus web site has been enhanced to refer out of state students only to those colleges choosing to develop the appropriate links and identify individual contacts with some expertise in assisting these students.
The MCCVLC will utilize the "Provider college / Home college" model for out of state students, just as for Michigan students, so everyone will have access to all courses offered through the Virtual Campus; it may be a bit more challenging to provide the home college services to out of state and international students.
Guidelines for member college services to out of state students and web page requirements have been approved by the Advisory Council and the MCCVLC Governing Board.
Web page resource guidelines
It is anticipated that the appropriate url's will be provided for inclusion on the Virtual Campus web page(s) developed to provide information for out-of-state and international students, as will the name, e-mail address and phone for at least one student advisor prepared to assist such students.
