Student Calendar

My experience at VA Western was excellent. The flexibility of the classes made it possible for me to earn an Associate’s degree over the course of two pregnancies. Additionally, once I finished my degree I was able to seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution where I went on to complete a Bachelor’s degree. My time at VA Western gave me the confidence and education I needed to make that goal possible. I will always think back fondly on those years!
