I am currently a librarian for VC and am fixing to be fired after three months due to lack of information, lack of cooperation, and lack of communication. The problems with this business (not school) are indeed about money, not students. I am like others most disposable. You break your back and are repaid by false statements meant to drive you out. Then when you falsely believe you have a job you... Add comment

There has also been others that feel that they have been discriminated against at Virginia College.

After reading all these complaints I find truth in some of what people say. I worked with VC for several years. When I first started with VC the student did come first. They did matter and the ultimate goal was to improve the lives of these students that were not cut out for traditional schools for whatever reason. Several years into my career the pressure to meet numbers became unbearable. ... Read more

I Would Not Recommend This School To Anybody. They Are Not An Accredited School, They Don't Have The Tools To Prepare You To Get A Job. My Clinicals Were Done At A Weight Loss Clinic That Didn't Have Billing Or Coding Available. Virginia College Is A Rip Off & I Need My Money Back. Add comment

Upon graduating in 2010 from Culinard , The Culinary Institute of Virginia College, my income increased $16,000 a year right off the bat. Even though all that the Culinard program offered was a diploma and not an actual degree, I was able to earn my Associate Degree from Virginia College and then transferred that degree to Johnson & Wales University for my Bachelor's Degree. I am now a... Read more

It's 2014 and this "school" still doesn't seem to have it together. The staff seems overworked and underpaid. The students do not have the proper tools to help them advance and to stick to the syllabus. This school has a high turnover rate, low morale and is frowned upon via my research. Richmond VA Campus for Virginia College appears to be barely legal, their accreditation is not recognized... Read more

I have attended both the Savannah Campus and the Columbus Campus. I was a medic in the Army and they don't count any of my experience. Also, they put me on a "provisional" period twice. They requested my funds from the VA, but my refund that I need to support my kids is not being given to me. I talked to everyone I could at the campus, they told me corporate handles it all. So, I call corporate.... Read more
