Lynda Hill - 1/23/2020
Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2014
"This place is a joke. Now I owe thousands for nothing more than a piece of crap diploma. The instructors did not teach the subject. We heard all about her home life and her kids her husband. I didnt learn anything about medical coding. The teachers are hired to teach but they are not real teachers they worked in the field of medical coding which doesnt make anyone a teacher. And i sat through all this got a diploma but i cannot pass the test for certification. This place is a rip off. We should be able to sue these people for stealing money"

"I'm not disgruntle at the staff at my school by no means, but I got caught up in them changing their program due to accreditation issues. I transferred from ITT everything was going good until I was having serious personal problems I dropped a quarter which in turn forced me into the new program, I wasn't upset because no matter the situation my training in the Air Force taught me to adapt and overcome, my problem is with me being in the new program they're not able to help me graduate in a timely manner, after seeing classes with only one student multiple times all of a sudden the school is not offering classes for me to take because I will be the only student. I have to sit out not 1 module but turns out I must sit out almost three modules and it's no fair that I must sit out all this time I guarantee they want their money whenever I do graduate. This really sucks because not only did ITT s**** me over now the school I'm attending is s******* me with no grease. I see why attendance is down after reading other reviews, I wouldn't recommend this school either simply because it's like they are just pushing you through school just to get their due."

"The staff was good but after you graduated its a different ball game. I been beefing with these people for a month now! I paid my hold I had on my transcript and they still haven't sent it over to the college I'm attending! Everybody making excuses saying its student clearing house! Why not take out the third party and send it themselves! I'm beyond pissed! I cannot even finish with my admission nor financial aid. On Top of that, they not even accredited!!!! None of my classes transferred!"

Degree: Medical Assistant

"I attended Virginia College in Jacksonville Fl. The teachers are amazing especially Mrs.S. and Mrs. I.. I finished successfully and obtained my certification. I am having no luck at all in obtaining employment. The Career Services has been no help at all. I now am stuck with student loans and a fast food job...."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018
"Attended the Spartanburg, SC campus. Was great. The staff could not have been nicer. I lost my spouse and mom within 6 months, and everyone at the school made sure I got my work done. I am a disabled vet and all the students always help me. Fell once and one of the staff members, picked me up and made sure I was ok. Never any issues with financing or classes. I am much older than most students and just attending VC had given me an education of today's kids. Overall, I was worried with all the negative reviews I read. I have had nothing but a positive experience. While I can't speak for all the campuses, the one in Spartanburg is well above and is a pleasure to attend. Graduated once, bsck now for another degree. Glad I did not listen to all the reviews."

"It was a pleasure attending this school. The Savannah campus was a great experience. The staff was very helpful during my time there. I developed great relationships with the staff and the students. The information that I learned was very helpful for the field that I went in. I would definitely recommend Virginia College to anyone that is willing to grow in there career field or a new one."

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017
"If you want to learn the wrong things to, not be assisted when needing help, or get blind sided by financial aid or your own program director (her last name rhymes with mean) you would thoroughly enjoy this facility! I do not recommend you come here if you want necessary hands on training. You are better off with YouTube!"

Degree: Surgical Technician
Graduation Year: 2019
"At first when I started the Surgical Technology degree program, I became ecstatic to go to school. I am a single mom of three and needed a college education to help provide for them. At first, the teachers were very professional acting and seemed to care until my first year in. I started noticing over half of the people in my program dropped out, and I had a few fellow students come to class when they wanted to. This included one or two classes, and if they were a certain ethnicity, they would get passed into my next semester.Which was unfair for the other hard working students who actually did work and came to class. My program director has changed twice. We started learning less and less. Then we would be demonstrated something one time and it was "our responsibility" to know how to do it without failing. I felt like my PD made a mockery out of me, once I "attempted' my lab. The later studies actually build from what you are "supposed" to be taught, but you never learn them to build from. I have the same teacher who teaches our A&P1&2 along with Pathopysiology who only allows you to memorize study guides, and makes you teach yourself. They act as if you are a pain just because you want to learn more or if you question anything. In my surgery classes, the same. We test on material that isn't even gone over,then once the semester gets towards the end, they overwhelm you with the things that had to be taught, and the student suffers for the teachers lacking. Please don't waste your time here! Unless you want to leave school in tears everyday and be in debt for years of your life! One would think for the price you pay here, you would get somewhat of an education."
