California Virtual Campus (CVC) Exchange

What is California Virtual Campus (CVC Exchange)?

The CVC Exchange is an innovative tool that allows students currently enrolled in a California Community College to instantly enroll in online courses offered at eligible colleges without filling out a separate application.

Students can be confident they can get the class they need thanks to real-time seat counts. Additionally, financial aid and academic transcripts are automatically transferred between the two schools.

No additional costs
Online courses through CVC Exchange are the same cost as a student’s local college. There are no additional costs to use this service.

How to get started
To get started, students must search for online classes using the CVC Exchange’s search engine, located at To accommodate a student’s unique needs, courses can be searched by CSU GE, IGETC, substitute course, or keyword. Search results contain both courses eligible for instant enrollment and those that require a separate application.

Palomar College is currently only registered as a Home College
