"I AM PRESENTLY GETTING PREPARED TO FILE A LAWSUIT AGAINST Virginia College for discriminating against me for having a medical illness. Virginia College fired me immediately after they received documentation from my doctor that I was a diabetic. This though process should tell you that their ethics are not for the sake of the individual but for the College. Their progrsms are overpriced and their credits do not transfer to all schools, previous graduates have had trouble finding jobs mdue to the accredition and some programs do not meet guidelines for certain program certification exams. Do not be fooled about their "Student First" philosophy. Admission Associates work in a high pressure atmosphere with the emapsis on "making the sale.""

"For everyone who keeps saying that this school is not accredited, you need to do some more research. Virginia College is accredited through the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, and they are licensed by the U.S. Department of Education. The reason it is difficult to transfer credits is because each of the courses taught there is specifically geared toward the career oriented degrees they offer. And if you happen to get one bad instructor, that is no reason to dismiss the school all together. Most of the instructors there are great, but a few are not so great. You would encounter that at any college."

"I am in my second quarter at Virginia College, and I love it. The faculty and staff are extremely helpful and all have open door policies. There are resources, such as a learning success center and tutoring, that are available to help you with anything you might be struggling with. Yes it does cost more than a community college, but it is well worth it. You walk away with a degree that is specific to the career you hope to have, and they assist you in finding a job once you have completed school. They make no guarentees that they will find you a job, but they do everything they can to help. And, if you lose your job down the road, they will help you find another. It is a serious school for people who are serious about persuig a career. I would definitely recommend it to anyone."

"If you got credit transferred from VC to a 4 year college like AL, AUB, TN, etc. Then you are a Hudini or you are as good a "bullshiter" as VC.No reputable university is going to accept VC credits, why would they.Before you register for this school, get a physco exam first, something is wrong with you.ht"

"Please name the school that accepted VC credits? Maybe, ITT Tech or some other whacky place calling themselves a school. If VC is so good why would you go somewhere else to finish school.Maybe those cooking school credits will transfer to Waffle House or McDonalds, but I can promose you they will not transfer to Alabama, Auburn or any other school that care about their reputation.So what reputable school will accept VC credits?"

"Want a college education? Go to a REAL college. Don't get laughed at when you put down on a resume Virginia College. IT IS A JOKE.It will cost you about $4000 per semester at an average state 4 year school. VC will cost you much more. $8000 per year for 4 years is $32000, you will have something that people will laugh at behind your back.Ride by a VC school early in the AM or during lunch or afternoon. Stupid looking people go there.STAY AWAY"

"I recently graduated from VCO and was accepted by a local university with no problems. So, I know that the school is a good school. However, I must admit the cost of tuition is a lot and I didn't realize it until it became time to graduate just how much money I borrowed to get an education."
