Welcome to Central Virginia Community College (CVCC)! Whether you are seeking an affordable start toward a bachelor's degree or the technical skills to advance your career, CVCC stands ready to help you achieve your goals and enrich your life.

I invite you to explore this Web site to learn more about the many ways in which CVCC can meet your needs. We have a program of study for everyone: college-transfer curricula that guarantee admission to four-year institutions, career and technical programs to prepare you for employment, and continuing education courses for personal enrichment and professional development. Best of all, you can pursue your studies at a time that suits you at a variety of locations - at our main campus in Lynchburg or at one of our off-site centers in Amherst, Appomattox, and Bedford. Because we match our mission to your needs, you can take classes during the day, at night, or even online.

What may not be apparent from this Web site is the most distinctive feature of CVCC: a community of caring faculty, staff, and administrators who dedicate themselves to helping every student succeed. For that reason, I invite you to call or visit us to learn more about our outstanding academic programs and student services. We can even help you identify financial aid and scholarship opportunities that place a college degree within your reach. Once you visit us, you will soon discover that you are surrounded by supportive people who care about your education, who share your aspirations, and who claim your dreams as their own.

We are CVCC. We are here for you. We are WHERE YOUR FUTURE BEGINS!
