Simply put, the KYVC strives to a technology-based clearninghouse for quality online college credit, professional development, and supplemental studies.

Who We Serve: The KYVC works with its provider institutions to specifically address the needs of the following client groups:

  • Adult students.
  • Place-bound and time-bound students.
