Due to the fact that Virginia Western is a two-year college, the student body has much more diversified goals, motives, and needs than other four-year universities. VWCC is definitely a college that has a plethora of opportunities, no matter what your individual goals are. Virginia Western is split into three separate divisions: the School of Business, Engineering, & Technology; the School of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences; and the School of Science, Mathematics, & Health Professions. The credit requirements vary greatly among the schools, and you should pay close attention to your program of study to make sure you are fulfilling all of the requirements.
A typical course load per semester is 15 credits for a full-time student and six credits for a part-time student. This greatly varies based on what your individual schedule can handle. Class sizes are relatively small at approximately 25 students; keeping the class sizes small allows for each student to create a relationship with his or her teachers. At Virginia Western, they work hard to make you feel like more than just a number!
