"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...."

"I GRADUATED FROM VIRGINIA COLLEGE IN 2OO8. I NEVER GAIN EMPLOYMENT AND THE JOB PLACEMENT SERVICES JUST SENDS OUT YOUR RESUME. I APPLIED WITH SEVERAL EMPLOYERS. WHEN THE QUESTION WAS ASKED WHERE DID I ATTEND SCHOOL THEY DIDN'T HIRE ME. OTHER EMPLOYERS REQUIRED THAT I HAD A YEAR OF EXPERIENCE. AFTER NO LUCK I GAVE UP ON THE CAREER. NOW I WAS TRYING TO RECERTIFICATION THEY'RE SAYING G THE SCHOOL WASN'T ACCREDITED. I'M IN DEBT PAYING BACK THIS $26,000 LOAN AFTER ALL THE INTEREST WAS ADDED. GOING THERE WAS A GREAT LEARNING EXPERIENCE BUT A HUGE LOST IN THE END"

Disappointed - 5/22/2016
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016
"I was very satisfied when beginning class in January of 2015 all the way up until now. First off I will begin by saying I became pregnant while attending school and I stayed to finish despite the fact. I had my child one term before I was to graduate so I took a term off to recuperate and spend time with my new little one. I returned the following term and I was expecting to graduate next week. I was told that because I am a returning student my form for my cap and gown wasn't mailed to me and that I wouldn't receive it in time so I cannot walk across stage. I am an A and B student despite the struggles I've endured I pushed on to make it this far. They don't care about what all I've put into this just the money I'm paying. They couldn't mail my form but they could mail a letter begging me to return. Yet I'm paying for graduation supplies regardless!! What a joke I will not recommend just for this reason. My education was great but graduation ceremony was denied of me."

"Please avoid this place. They are a complete ripoff. You can get a CMA certification for FREE through some employers. They are so unethical. Do yourself a favor and invest in something positive and worth your while. Not this place. It's very unorganized and trashy."

"Going to Virginia college of Greensboro was the best thing in my life. I have the job of my dreams because of it and was well prepared for it. Thank you for the teachers they all helped me do my best. I think that if a student takes it seriously and gives it his or her best they would do wonderful but of course if you are just looking for a free ride and lack of they will never succeed and just complain about how terrible the school is when actually it's them."
