Shared Distance Courses (SSDL)

Shared Distance Courses are Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) courses offered in partnership with Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC). These courses allow students to earn PVCC credit while taking an online course with an instructor from another VCCS school, as well as use the PVCC testing center to take proctored tests. 
 
All Shared Distance Courses have a section number in the course schedule of .90-.99. Each course will have the following statement in the notes “This is a Shared Services Distance Learning (SSDL) online course offered in collaboration with xxxxx Community College.”
 
Shared Distance Course students have access to all services provided by NVCC in addition to all PVCC resources.
