The health and wellness of students, faculty and staff at Northwest Vista College is the highest priority.

These include the requirement to wear face coverings at all locations. The Alamo Colleges will continue to prioritize the health and safety of students and employees above all else and follow the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the City and County.

COVID-Related FAQs:

Will NVC students be allowed on campus?

Students who have courses that are scheduled on campus on specified days will be on campus unless otherwise determined by instructor and/or college. Students who exhibit COVID-19 signs or who have been exposed to someone who has COVID need to report this to their instructor and quarantine for 14 days and therefore will not be going to on-campus classes. Instructors will make other arrangements with these students to make up work, etc.

Will employees be allowed on campus?

NVC employees who are scheduled to be on campus for Spring 2021 will be working onsite. Employees who are scheduled to work on campus but who cannot do so for health reasons and need to work remotely can fill out the Remote Work Request which can be found in ACES. See email for more information. NVC employees who are not scheduled to be on campus will not be allowed on campus.

Will Student Success Services (Admissions, Advising, Records, Counseling, Disability Services, Financial Aid, Testing, Bursar, Student Advocacy, Veterans Services, Student Activities) be offered on campus?
