About Virginia College School of Business and Health Virginia College School of Business and Health offers diploma and associate’s degree programs in areas such as accounting, office management, computer drafting, medical assisting, medical coding, pharmacy technician, criminal justice and therapeutic massage. The school also offers bachelor’s degrees in business administration, healthcare services management, and criminal justice.

The school offers flexible class schedules, small class sizes, and instructors with in-the-field experience. Financial aid is available for those who qualify. Students may also take advantage of lifetime career placement assistance. Employers who hire Virginia College graduates are given a guarantee of student competency. If the student does not display the skills that he or she successfully demonstrated in class, the student may return to school and re-take the class at no additional charge. Some limitations apply.
