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!
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....
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.
The Virginia college was a tremendous job, I left and came back to pursue another degree. The staff is very really good. Work well with students, Thank you Virginia College. I have taken my knowledge and put it to use in my field of study. Everything I have learned from this school I have used in my field and then some.
I would not recommend this school to anybody They only want your money Don't care if you graduate or certification I didn't get now one All because you don't get the help you need When the teachers see you growing they hate on you I had surgery and came back the teacher that suppose to help me didn't give a d*** Didn't give your or encouragement Nuthing Now I wasted years their and owe 20,000 dollars no degree or certification They do not care bout your life
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!
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.
This school and instructors are horrible.They have no idea how to teach. All they did was talk about their homelife the majority of OUR TIME.Yes of course I passed but cannot pass the exam to get certified.I would not recommend this place.
My experience on the Savannah campus was generally what you would expect of a stereotypical for-profit college. The admissions specialist was very nice and seemed helpful until I asked about their disabilities coordinator since I have adhd, anxiety, and autism spectrum disorder and have a tendency to have difficulty with focusing and prone to sensory overloads. She informed me she had never heard of a disabilities coordinator even though every college is required to have one. I also had the displeasure of dealing with transphobia. My medical terminology instructor was very disrespectful of those (like myself) who do identify as transgender. My instructor was openly using transphobic slurs, making explicit jokes about trans people's bodies, and the egging on she received from the class only added on to emotional hurt, but also made me feel physically unsafe just sitting in the classroom let alone actually reporting it.
