My experience of this college is that I'm open minded of new knowledge of my career choice. I have retained a lot of knowledge and help from school.
A great and warm community college with an office staff that strives to help each student whether just in choosing classes, or transferring to a University. Teachers that work with you and help with any questions to you might have, or some programs can assist you in any area of study that you seek. They offer many fields of study, certified degree programs, and transferable programs that do transfer to your university of choice. A place to learn and grow before heading off to a four year or higher college, learn a trade and get started on your workforce career.
I did the early college program, and some of the teachers were terrible, but some were really goos like the english teacher mrs green

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!
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.
Central Community College is a good Junior college to go to right after high school to get your general studies out of the way so you can focus your major at a 4 year college. The professors care about your success and are a lot of fun. The councilors are very helpful and provide information to decide and help with your majors. The accommodations for students with disabilities are really helpful. The campus is very good to start out so you can get a good idea of a college campus. Overall I'd suggest this school to any student who want the easy way through college.
I was in the Engineering Program which was a great program. Great teachers. Counseling Center could use some work. Had some trouble applying for classes. Do your own research before going to the counselors.
I like the fact that the staff (teachers mostly) are friendly and helpful in not only your classes but your whole degree.
What I like about Central Virginia Community College is that it has a lot to offer for the size it is. It is a very small school but there are many classes you can take. What I would like to see change is the professors. Some professors I have taken have been very rude, arrogant, and sarcastic. I would like to see CVCC have better professors that actually care about their students.
The professors make assignments related to real life. Central Virginia Community College is a great place to start your Associate Degree and the cost is excellent. It is a fun school and has great subjects to learn about. I highly recommend going to CVCC for the first 2 years.
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.
Great choice as a cost effective yet quality education option. I truly enjoyed my time as a science student. My chemistry professor made the subject come alive and it helped me in my decision to study chemistry for my undergraduate degree.
I recently graduated from CVCC. My experiences at this school were good. The classes weren't terribly challenging, but they weren't a breeze. The classes were mostly smaller, so you were able to have one on one with the teachers, which was nice. The professors seemed to genuinely care about your success. If I had to, I would definitely take more classes there.
Central Virginia Community College is not expensive like other colleges. Great counselors are always available for help. The college has guaranteed agreements with four-year colleges.
Signing up for courses and finding where the courses are located is super easy, but finding a course you need at a convenient time can be a challege. Counseling for courses and financial aid could use improvement, but for a public school everything is pretty decent.
I loved my professors and peers at CVCC. You sure do meet some interesting people there. I am so happy that this was where I started my college career.
I have not yet faced any aspects as of yet.
