Piedmont Virginia Community College Reviews

Exemplary professors/instructors. The entire community is committed to the student's success - even if the student isn't all that committed! They are passionate about their subjects and about PVCC as a whole. The diversity was broad-spectrum: young/old, varying shades of skin, overseas students and more. Professors work hard to provide 'real-life' engagement through guest speakers and presentations that are available to all students. A truly remarkable experience.

Piedmont Virginia Community College has been a great experience - it's a fantastic community college with lots of resources because of it's connection and proximity to the University of Virginia and many of the PVCC professors also work at UVA. The teaching staff has always been very supportive, helping me outside of class with finding work in my field, telling me about available school scholarships.
The administration is a mess though. Don't even get me started on the dimwits in the financial aid office and if you're planning to do the Automatic Transfer program to go to UVA or VA Tech or VCU, I would definitely recommend double checking with another counselor that the first counselor gave you the correct information on required courses to take.
They are very serious on communication and the satisfaction of their students, as well as the people who wish to apply- it feels like home! Piedmont Virginia Community College is also very local and convenient for the attendees that work and wish to go to school at the same time. 10/10 would recommend!
