WV Business College in Nutter Fort named in class action lawsuit brought by students

By Local News | July 09, 2017
Issues of accreditation at West Virginia Business College are going to court. On Monday, Charleston Attorney Rusty Webb announced he was filing a class action lawsuit in Harrison County against the soon-to-be unaccredited school.

“I am tired of bad people doing bad things to good people,” Webb said on “580-LIVE with Charleston Mayor Danny Jones” heard on 580-WCHS, a MetroNews affiliate.
“These non-traditional students spent tens of thousands of dollars on what is a worthless diploma.”
Webb was referring to the 30 students who graduated from WVBC with various degrees just last week in Wheeling.
The Community and Technical College System of West Virginia, responsible for authorizing certain academic institutions in the state, voted earlier this year to remove WVBC’s permit on June 30th after the school failed to gain accreditation due to problems with staff credentials.
This leaves the 135th and last graduating class of the business college with degrees from an institution that will no longer be recognized effective on June 30.
