Virginia Highlands Community College Reviews
Rating 3.84 out of 5 101 reviews
Most of my classes have been online because of the pandemic. The curriculum has been well designed and the systems used are user friendly and not complicated in the least bit. The professors will record lectures and/or have zoom meetings where discussions are held and you are able to get to know your classmates and professors.
The staff is so helpful and very welcoming. The moment you set foot on campus you are put at ease and made to feel welcome. The professors are understanding and are willing to work with you when situations arise so long as you advise them of your circumstances. This community college is a good place to get an affordable college education.
Everything has been online because of Covid-19, so there was simply a lot of reading, notes taking, and videos. It was really not the best, but I was able to keep my grades up with all my readings of textbooks. So, nothing to really say because I haven't had a normal experience. Teachers were all easy to get to talk to via email.
Same as the overall experience for the college because I hadn't had anything but online classes because of coronavirus.
They are an excellent college and a college I would requimend before going on to a 4 year college. It would also help if you are undecided.
I’ve enjoyed my time at VHCC. Professors care about learning and are helpful. Attending VHCC is a great way to save money and get some college under your belt before transferring to a four year school.
I liked Virginia Highlands Community College because it is a small campus and it is close to home. I also like Virginia Highlands because they have a unique degree in Human Services- Early Childhood Education. I could not decide between what degree to get and with this one I get some of both.
I’m attending there right now as a sophomore. I’m in the nursing program and it has its ups and downs but overall is a good place. I think Virginia Highlands has a good nursing program and my advisor is very help as well as the tutoring center and my fellow classmates.
Overall, VHCC was a good way to save money in the long run. Were the classes exciting or challenging in any way? No. However, I saved thousands of dollars by going here first instead of going straight into a four-year institution. Also most of the professors and wonderful and as helpful as they can be.
Virginia Highlands Community College has a wonderful campus and is a very excellent choice of school. It has given me opportunites throughout high school to begin my education here through online courses. These courses are challenging, but very helpful when it comes to beginning college and getting a head start on the classes I need for my career path.
Virginia Highlands Community College is a great environment that offers many scholarships for those working to get their Associates Degree. My experience has been very pleasant especially considering the fact that these 2 years have not cost any money because of my work in the community that was noticed by the school. Many of the advisors are always glad to help students successfully schedule their classes, and eventually transfer. I firmly believe that everyone should attend VHCC for their first two years of college as it provides a great education, and may not cost anything for the student.
I loved my experience in the nursing program at Virginia Highlands Community College. Although the program was difficult, my professors were extremely helpful and made sure that I had all the materials I needed to succeed. I would highly recommend this school to anyone that is interested in beginning their education or to those looking to change their career path!
Highlands is a great place to go to start off your college experience. You are able to get your pre-requisites out the way at a lower cost. The staff is super nice and wanting every student to succeed in life.
A wonderful community college, overall, with top quality education in many fields. I would like to see more consistency in engagement with students from professors of online classes.
My experience at VHCC has been excellent! All of my professors have been wonderful to work with. I love the online class offerings as I am able to fit them into my work schedule. I would like to see the online classes be offered as a self-paced, 10-week or semester listing. This would help if a class was finished quicker you could go on to the next class without having to wait for the next semester to start.
I feel like Virginia Highlands Community College is a great school. I've not really had any major problems with them that they didn't fix or offer to fix and help me with.
I really enjoy going to school here. I think it's a good school to go to if you're undecided about your future. However, they are not very good about dealing with transfer issues.
