CVC-OEI Finish Faster Online!

The CVC-OEI: Finish Faster Online (FFO) Initiative: cvc.eduFinish Faster Online Image

The California Virtual Campus – Online Education Initiative (CVC-OEI) is a collaborative effort among California Community Colleges (CCCs) to ensure that significantly more students are able to complete their educational goals by increasing both access to and success in high-quality online courses.

How it works: All ADT/AA/AS/CTE transfer fully-online courses are offered through Finish Faster Online. A student searches for a course, applies to the college, and then takes the online course to 'finish their degree/certificate faster'. If the online course is cross-listed in the OEI, the student does not need to apply to the college in order to take the online course - therefore, 'finishing their degree/certificate even FASTER!'


If All GCC Online Courses are Visible in Finish Faster Online, How Do I Get My Online Course to Show at the TOP of the SEARCH Results?

The Design Academy is a free, online professional development program for full and part-time California Community College faculty teaching online who wish to align a course to the OEI Rubric.
