The President of Virginia College says all campuses across the county will be closing before the end of the year. 

In a memo sent to faculty members of Virginia College Wednesday, it reads that Virginia College lost an accreditation from the Department of Education and  that the department added additional  requirements that would make operating the campuses more challenging and the uncertainty of these requirements resulted in being unable to acquire additional capital that would keep the schools in operation. The final day for classes in Greenville is slated for December 19th.

The fate of current students of Virginia College’s credits and completed hours have not yet been determined.
