Virginia College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (108)
I had good and bad experiences with Virginia College. I attended the one in Spartanburg SC, they can't keep staff, teachers always leavings, always sometime new. The financial aid office was terrible, but overall I was pretty pleased. I did not graduate on time because of the financial aid, but I did graduate and now I have a wonderful job that I am thankful for, and I would not have that job if I had not attended Virginia College.
I attended Virginia College's online program, which was extremely conducive for my lifestyle. The instructors made sure we knew how and when was a good time to contact them. Throughout the five years I was enrolled the knowledge I gained has been able to help me earn awards at work.
It is a good college.the teachers are there for you if you need them.financial aid help you all the time.carreer services help you before you graduate with preparing you to find a job. I was glad to attend this college.it was a little pricey but well worth it.
Starting my career path at Virginia college of Mobile was the best choices I've made. The teachers and staff were very helpful from the beginning to the end. They make you feel like your never alone. I would tell anyone that's looking for a great school to choose Virginia college of mobile they really do help make your dreams come true.
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.
When we returned for Spring term, we were handed last minute schedule changes including double booking of classes.. They discontinued classes we had been scheduled for which has added a semester and tuition costs for myself and untold hassles for many others. There is no way to contact corporate and they don't return any calls. They simply don't care. Instructors and program directors are great but management is in it for the money.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stay AWAY from this school. I started VC in 2010 and graduated in 2012. I have yet to pass the AAMA certification. Half of the questions that were asked we did not learn. VC is the most unchallenging school I have ever attended. The amount of debt that you go in to get your diploma is ridiculous. The loan amount was no where near what the actual amount is. VC only cares about taking people's monies rather than teach. I have about 6 friends who I met at VC and just like me they have failed their certification. VC is a JOKE!!!
This school is so unorganized & does not cater to military students as well as they advertise. I went to the school 4 months before they even reported to the VA for me. They always have "system issues" when it comes to getting you your money, you always have to wait. Pursing a degree at this school is an extra headache in itself. I withdrew within a year.
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.
