TxVSN

Cisco College is a participant in the TxVSN through the Virtual College of Texas. The 80th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 1788, authorizing the Texas Education Agency to establish and administer a state virtual school network to provide education to students through electronic means. An electronic course is defined as a course in which instruction and content are delivered primarily over the Internet; a student and teacher are in different locations for a majority of the student's instructional period; most instructional activities take place in an online environment; the online instructional activities are integral to the academic program; extensive communication between a student and a teacher and among students is emphasized; and a student is not required to be located on the physical premises of a school district or open-enrollment charter school.

A schedule of TxVSN classes available through Cisco College can be found at

In order for students to participate in TxVSN through Cisco College, the student must complete the enrollment process.
