I am a spouse military retiree and Southwest Virginia has worked wonderfully with me while taking online classes overseas! They worked with me through every step of my way and I can say that I am proud being a member of this college. Even in times when I thought it is impossible to take these classes, administration, library and leadership worked with me till it became possible. Exceptional people and great service that is all I can say.

The one thing that I would love to have changed is the proctoring when over seas. It was difficult for me to find a proctor for my class and only because Southwest Virginia has wonderful people they helped me to work with the right proctor. I am really happy with this school so far and hope to see the same action in the future.

Thank you Southwest!
Currently, I just completed my first semester of the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program at Southwest Virginia Community College. The program is a (5) semester program. What I most like about this college is the small town feel of it. The program only accepts (30) applicants and then those (30) are split into two groups of (15). The small group makes it great to get to know the other students and it keeps the class sizes small. Many of the classes required are hybrid classes which means that they are taken remotely with some meetings in the class room but most of the work can be done at home. I love that flexibility which allows be to also keep a job while working through the program. Overall the what I love most about the College is the flexibility of the hybrid classes and the small class sizes.
I love Southwest! I have grown so much during my time there. Becoming involved as in Student Government, being an Ambassador, and PTK I really feel apart of my college.

It is also a great place to come and get your feet wet in the college atmosphere and decide what you what to do at a fraction of the cost of a four year university.

Most of the teachers really are there for the students to learn and the staff have a homey and friendly feel.
