My time here at Central Virginia Community College has been wonderful. The counselors help you in any way they can, the professors are very good and make sure that they make themselves accessible to you, there are many work study opportunities, and if you intend to transfer, they do all that they can to connect you with 4 year schools. I will surely miss this school when i go on to nursing school!

Central Virginia Community College can be easily affordable. Advisors in the Counseling and Admissions office are always available for guidance. Most classes are small in size. Their size enables students to engage in class and ask questions. Writing center is one of my favorite place at CVCC. Peer and professional tutors proofread students' papers and assist them in writing. It has been a great source of help. Food is a little expensive there.
Moreover, CVCC has many guaranteed admission agreements with four-year colleges and universities. Students can transfer to other colleges without any difficulty. Transfer counselors make sure that students all fulfill course requirements of prospective college or university and transfer their credits easily. I finished my freshman year at CVCC and have transferred to the University of Virginia. Scholarships opportunities are offered to college students who maintain good GPA. Overall, my experience at CVCC has been wonderful.
CVCC is a great school for those who are planning on transferring or who just want to get an education without forking over tens of thousands of dollars. There are some really great professors here who know what they're talking about and really care for their students and their success.
The financial aid department here is absolutely horrible, though. They have screwed me over as well as many of my friends, and it has caused one of my friends to have to drop out (because he couldn't afford to go because they gave him false information regarding his aid and payment) and I didn't receive my financial aid because they neglected to let me know of information they needed, and they were unapologetic throughout the whole process.
CVCC doesn't have much of a campus life since everyone there is a commuter student. But most people I've met are very friendly and social so I've enjoyed my time here.
