Northwest Vista College

Northwest Vista College is one of five public community colleges within the Alamo Colleges in San Antonio, Texas, USA. More than 17,000 students attend Northwest Vista College in each of the fall and spring semesters.

Classes are offered from early morning until late in the evening. Students have the option to take 16-week (traditional college semester) courses, eight week courses known as Flex semester or Maymester. Northwest Vista College offers open admission. Approximately 97 percent of students surveyed say they would recommend Northwest Vista College to others. On average, classes have about 24 students. Students learn in a hands on environment where they are encouraged to take charge of their own learning, to work in groups and pairs and teach each other. Most instructors teach like a coach or facilitator rather than a lecturer.HistoryThe college was established after a land donation by the World Savings and Loan Association in 1994. The campus was established on June 20, 1995. Northwest Vista College officially opened in the fall of 1995 as one of the newest additions to the Alamo Community College District. Classes were offered at the Northside Independent School District and at partner corporation sites. Enrollment that first semester was 12 students. At the time, the Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology program, designed by the college and several corporate sponsors, was the lead program during the college's early years. (The program is no longer offered.) With over 800 students enrolled in classes being held at various businesses and schools in Westover Hills and the surrounding area during its early stages, the college started to expand.
