New VSCS Portal

The VSCS has adopted a new Portal as of 1/11/2022. The Portal is your one stop shop for information and resources. Once logged in, you will find resources to help plan your degree, check the status of your financial aid and help you plan for long-term and short-term educational goals.

The Portal can be found on the web at portal.ccv.edu and the VSC Portal app is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Access and Activation

CCV Portal

To access:

  1. Visit portal.ccv.edu
  2. Select the “Student/Faculty/Staff” profile
  3. Log in using your Portal username and password
  4. Use Duo for multi-factor authentication
  5. Select CCV as your VSCS institution

To activate your account you will need to provide your:

  • First Name – Use your chosen name if you provided one
  • Last Name
  • Birth Date
  • College ID – Your seven-digit ID number

You will go through a final authorization process using a PIN before your account is activated. You will be able to set your password after the PIN confirmation.

Duo Multi-Factor Authentication

Duo Security is a multi-factor authentication service that all CCV students are required to use when logging in to VSCS services such as Canvas, Portal, Self-Service, and more.

  • Authentication methods:  Duo offers several methods of multi-factor authentication. The Duo Mobile application is the easiest way to authenticate. If you do not have a smartphone, you can enroll a regular cell phone (SMS and calls) or landline (calls) for two-factor authentication. If none of the previous methods work for you, hardware tokens are available on request. Information about requesting a hardware token can be found on our FAQ page
  • Logging in: When logging in, you will still enter your username and password. After inputting your login information, Duo requires you to complete a method of second-factor authentication. Duo can remember your browser for 12 hours before receiving another prompt for two-factor authentication.

The unofficial transcript is good for many purposes, including high school credit or employer needs. However, if you are applying to another college, the college will want an official transcript.

To send your official CCV transcript to an employer, another educational institution, or any other third party you can place your request electronically through Parchment, where you will need to create an account separate from your CCV Portal account.

This secure website offers transcripts that can be electronically delivered to an in-network college or university, emailed to an individual (they receive a one-time download code within an email) or sent using various shipping methods, including overnight. The minimum processing fee is $6.50 per transcript. Other charges apply according to the chosen method of delivery.

Please be aware that all financial or library obligations with CCV as well as any of the VSC colleges must be met before we can release your transcript.

To print your unofficial CCV transcript:

  • Log in to the Portal.
  • Click on the “Registration” tile and follow the “Unofficial Transcript” link
  • Select VUG CCV Undergraduate Transcript.
  • Print.

If you are unable to log in to the Portal, you can request an unofficial transcript by contacting the registrar’s office.
