According to the website AccreditedOnlineColleges.org Piedmont Virginia Community College is ranked among the best online universities and community colleges in the United States. PVCC was ranked 49th in a list of the 50 of the best 2 year online colleges.
The recognition comes in part for keeping their programs up-to-date and easy to use online, and for the high quality of its online courses.
“Our goal is to provide access to higher education to everyone,” said PVCC President Frank Friedman. “Our students appreciate the ease and convenience of online classes.”
Nearly half of all PVCC students take an online course during their time at school, and last year saw a 23.2% increase in the number of students taking classes exclusively online.
