How To Enroll At VLACS
At VLACS, our goal is to get you learning as quickly as possible. Once you’ve reviewed our Learning Catalog and identified the offerings you are most interested in, it’s time to begin enrollment! To get started, follow our simple three-step enrollment process.
Log into your account as often as you wish, using your username and password. Once you are placed in your desired course, you will be contacted by your instructor.
Students may opt to work at an accelerated, traditional or extended pace, however, regular work submission and communication is required in all VLACS courses in accordance with the student’s pace chart.
If you choose to meet competencies through projects, teams, experiences or a combination of these and course work, you will not have the option to earn honors or advanced designation. However, learning through projects, teams or experiences provide students with the opportunity for more authentic, student driven, and in depth learning.
VLACS has on-going registration. You may enroll in at any time throughout the year. Please check our learning catalog to see if there are waiting lists for the course, project, experience or team project that in which you are interested.

The admissions process at VLACS is intended to help support students as they transition to online learning full-time. Prospective students will follow the steps below as part of the admissions process:
The first step in the admissions process is to complete the application and Admissions Plan Supplement (included in the application). After VLACS receives your application, the office will contact you via email to schedule an online Information Session. After you attend an Information Session, you will receive a link to schedule an Admissions Plan Review Meeting. During this meeting you will discuss your course completion goals, course selection, and course requirements, as well as develop a timeline for acceptance to the full-time program. The last step in the admissions process is to meet the goals outlined in your Admissions Plan, which involves the completion of online coursework. Once you meet these goals, you will be accepted to our full-time program.
It typically takes students 8 -16 weeks to complete their admission plan and gain acceptance. However, the amount of time it takes for a student to be accepted to the full-time program is based on the personalized plan he/she creates with the admissions counselor during the application process and will vary with each student.
