The Student Consumer Information regulations of the United States Department of Education require colleges and universities to provide prospective and current students and employees access to certain information to which they are entitled as consumers. It is Virginia Western's intention to provide complete and easy access to any information students and employees need. The information required for the student consumer information can be found at http://www.virginiawestern.edu/services/studentconsumerinfo.php
The Federal Consumer Information also requires that Virginia Western annually distribute the college’s security report and Drug and Alcohol Policy to current and prospective students. Please be advised that the college’s crime statistics and annual reporting of all college incidents required under the Clery Act are available for your review on our website at the following link.
If you have any questions about the annual report, please feel free to contact Craig Harris, Police Chief.
The Drug and Alcohol Policy can be found at http://www.virginiawestern.edu/services/advising/substanceabuse.php
