The Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC), A Complete Florida Plus program, is made up of several units which provide statewide innovative educational services for Florida's K-adult students. Working collaboratively with Florida’s 12 public universities, 28 public colleges, K-12 school districts, and other partners, FLVC provides free services to help students go to college, succeed in school, prepare for career success, and in life after graduation.


The purpose of FLVC is to:

  • Provide information regarding and access to distance learning courses and degree programs offered by public postsecondary education institutions within Florida.
  • Coordinate with the Florida College System and the State University System to identify and provide online academic support services and resources when the multi-institutional provision of such services and resources is more cost effective or operationally effective.
  • Administer the Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative established in s. 1006.73 and consult with the chancellors of the Florida College System and the State University System regarding the implementation and operations of the cooperative.
  • Facilitate degree completion for the state’s adult learners through the Complete Florida Degree Initiative.


Units under the Florida Virtual Campus include:


The Florida Virtual Campus and the Complete Florida Plus Program operate FloridaShines, a statewide hub for delivering innovative educational services that operate collaboratively across Florida’s public education institutions and educational systems.  The Complete Florida Plus Program also includes the Complete Florida Degree Initiative and the MyCareerShines career planning and preparation service.
