Narrative:

 

Vernon College notified the Commission on Colleges of a substantive change related to distance learning in August of 2006. Vernon College submitted a substantive change prospectus, in coordination with the Virtual College of Texas (VCT), in which Vernon College indicated that we were offering more than 50% of program courses through distance learning. The prospectus was reviewed and the substantive change for offering more than 50% of program courses through distance learning was approved, and the continued accreditation of VCT was also approved both in June of 2007.
