They are accredited. The facts is what you need. Call the board and find out yourself before making slanderous remarks. Maybe the department of education or Texas workforce commission might be able to help you. Like I said the facts are important at least to the people who believe in reality.

I graduated from this school but would not recommend to any one. Very dysfunctional and unorganized. Very "Ghetto"....

Vista is a waste of time!!! On the third week my instructor let everyone see their grades! I never missed a day so my participation grades are always a 100! The last week I viewed my grades and my participation from day one to the last day are 70 %! I asked her how they went from 100 to 70 and all she said was " I dont know what to tell you"! Its obvious she changed my grades because she felt some type of way but at least find an excuse! Very unprofessional environment ! Vista college in el paso

I made an apt and took a tour. Were very informative and helpful. It IS accredited and a private school which is why it's 21k. I'm still debating on if thw Networking degree is worth it because I'm not computer Savvy.

What campus and what was your major? I'm trying to find out if the Networking or IT or computer science major is the way to go for someone not very tech savvy. Ty

I AM CURRENTLY A STUDENT AT VISTA IN LONGVIEW AND I HAVE ALREADY TAKEN MY CLASSROOM PORTION. I AM NOW DOING MY EXTERNSHIP. HONESTLY IF I COULD DO EVERYTHING ALL OVER AGAIN I WOULD STILL GO TO VISTA BECAUSE THE COLLEGE OFFERS CERTAIN ATTRIBUTES I WAS LOOKING FOR. I LOVE THE SHORT TIME PERIOD IN WHICH I CAN EARN MY CERTIFICATION AND THE FACT THAT I CAN WORK FULL TIME AND STILL GO TO SCHOOL WAS A DEAL BREAKER FOR ME. WORKING AND ATTENDING COLLEGE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A CHALLENGE FOR ME BUT IT WORKED OUT WHEN I WENT THROUGH THE DENTAL HYGIENE PROGRAM,. THOSE ARE MY MAIN REASONS FOR ENROLLING AS A STUDENT AT VISTA. HOWEVER, THE EXPENSE OF TUITION IS EXCESSIVE AND I HAD STUDENT LOANS BEFORE COMING TO VISTA; THEREFORE, I ALREADY KNOW PAYING OFF THE COMBINED AMOUNT WILL BE AN UPHILL BATTLE. THE PROFESSIONALISM OF THE STAFF WAS DISAPPOINTING AND THE CONSTANT CHANGING OF RULES WAS IRRITATING. I HAD THE FEELING LIKE THE PROGRAM WASN'T STABLE AND NOT WORTH THE MONEY. OVERALL, MY TEACHERS IS WHAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE FOR ME. I REALLY LEARNED A TRADE AND ENJOYED LEARNING IT!!!! THE HANDS ON EXPERIENCE IN THE DENTAL OFFICE SETTING WAS VERY MUCH LIKE I DO RIGHT NOW (TRAINING AT AN ACTUAL DENTAL OFFICE) I WAS PREPARED FOR THE ACTUAL WORLD IN DENTAL ASSISTING! SO MY ADVICE TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN VISTA VERSUS TRADITIONAL COLLEGE IS TO WEIGH YOUR OPTIONS. COST, TIME IN SCHOOL, LEARNING ENVIRONMENT,ETC GOOD LUCK!

This school is horrible they teach u answers to a test that's it and it's all about your money their job placement is a joke and staff try and literally screw students. Way to much money to pay for this school I'd rather suck it up and go to community college

I was in the first set of classes that was at the Longview campus. This school has so much drama that it wasn't even funny. I had to drop out for a while but I did come back I was told I owed 300$ and then I was good to go now 2 years later I still do not have a job as a medical assistant and I'm getting calls from vista sayin I owe them 3000$ don't waist your time or money here
