The education that i have received from this college is definitely considered a investment. The school tuition is not expensive for the type of education that individuals will receive. My experience has been wonderful at SVCC and absolutely worth the money, the professors are excellent and more one on one with the students. The classes are smaller so less distraction and more time to review and ask questions with the Professors. I value my education like I value my life, that is why I invested and pursued an education at Southside Virginia Community College where educations and students' needs come first!

The classes I have taken so far have been great! They are organized and easy to follow. The steps to the nursing program are easily accessible online for the off-campus student and clearly explained in the information session (Great Concept)!. Wish the financial aid process was explained better online though. Overall, this school is ideal for the returning, working student - it's accessible, affordable and informative.

Fast, Simple, and Easy – I am very satisfied with the education I'm getting considering the amount of money that has to be paid. I feel the professors genuinely care for their students. The financial aid process went over great. All I had to do was talk to a couple of people, fill out some papers, and send it in and I got my tuition, books, and supplies all paid for!
