The Virginia Education Wizard App!

The Virginia Community College System has officially launched the Virginia Education Wizard App! The app can be downloaded for free and can be used to search for general information pertaining to colleges in Virginia. The app also allows users to search careers that are in high demand and find schools that offer degrees that lead to such careers. If you experience any trouble or glitches with the app please contact Steven Chichester (schichester@virginiawestern.edu).
Here are the links you can use to access the apps. They are working on creating an app for Android products, but right now they just have one that is compatible with Apple products.





Please share with all who might be interested.
