Science @ CVCC

As the science department chair at Chattahoochee Valley Community College (CVCC), I would like to welcome you! In accordance with CVCC’s mission, the science department is committed to providing all of our students with a learner-centered, hands-on experience in a small classroom setting. We offer traditional science courses as well as hybrid courses. Course descriptions for all CVCC classes can be found in our catalog (BIO, CHM, and PHS/PHY }.   Academic achievement is valued at CVCC as evidenced by our annual awards banquet. Our science instructors recognize our students’ goals and work hard to support them.

CVCC’s science department has a successful placement rate with many institutions in the area including Auburn University and Columbus State University.  The Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreement [would like for this to link to the STARS site] helps our students decipher course transfer within the Alabama system and we have several articulation agreements with neighboring colleges and universities in Georgia. Our science students are well-prepared for the academic rigor of these programs and institutions.

At CVCC, you can build an excellent foundation for an exciting career in the sciences as a healthcare professional or a professional in any one of the many areas of science. Condensing our mission to its essence, we take our students from where they are academically to where they need to be. We offer many support services to help students progress through their programs of study and achieve their goals. We would love to help you!

Prospective students are always welcome to contact one of our faculty. We look forward to having you as a student in our science classrooms at CVCC.

Best Regards,
Susan McCollum, Science Chair
