Welcome to Northwest Vista College’s
Schedule and 2011-2012 Academic Catalog
~~one of the Alamo Colleges
Northwest Vista College welcomes you to our academic publications online.
By moving the Alamo Colleges five academic catalogs and each semester session’s Schedule of Classes away from print and into online formats, the Alamo Colleges reduce costs while going green. Printed catalogs easily become outdated even before rolling off the presses. Online software allows us to provide course catalogs and semester schedules that are updated in real time and easily searchable.
To access Northwest Vista College’s current online catalog and schedule of classes, click on the Academics tab on the Home Page and choose Class Schedule or Course Catalog from the menu. The Schedule of Classes provides guidelines for applying to the College and links for registering for classes online.
The navigation menu is located on the left side of the page. Use the menu to navigate through the catalog and class schedule.
