Victoria College will resume all classes and normal business operations on Monday, Feb. 22. This includes all real-time remote, alternating, online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses at all VC locations.

Students should look for communications from their instructors for information about changes to course schedules/calendars and deadlines specific to each course.

Students who continue to deal with power outages or loss of Internet connectivity should contact the instructor for each course to discuss accommodations.

It is important for students and employees at VC’s facilities in Victoria to be mindful that the City of Victoria continues to operate under a water boil notice at this time.

Individuals at these locations should plan to bring their own bottled water until the water boil notice is rescinded. The Cove, Subway, The Grind, and Café Espresso will open for usual hours, although some items - such as fountain drinks - will be temporarily unavailable due to the water boil notice.
