Congratulations on your decision to transfer or return to Northwest Vista College. We look forward to welcoming you!   

Step 1 – Complete All Steps in the Application and Enrollment Process

All steps in the application and enrollment process must be completed before signing up for orientation and advising.

Click here to view the enrollment process for Transfer and Former Students.

Step 2 – Complete the Online Transfer and Former Student Orientation

The orientation is completely online to allow you to move at your own pace, but it only takes about 20-25 minutes to complete. The orientation will review registration guides, schedule options, financial aid information, and payment instructions.
(Note for transient students: Transient students who are only taking summer classes at NVC and will be returning to their home institution will not complete the Transfer and Former Student Orientation. Transient students may self-register through ACES once their enrollment steps are complete. Students who need assistance using ACES to register may visit Vista Central on a walk-in basis, but they should meet with their advisors at their home institution for advising services to ensure NVC courses will be acceptable for transfer.

Step 3 – Register for Courses

Once you have completed your orientation, you have three different options to register for classes.

Meet with a Certified Advisor (Recommended)
At the end of the orientation, you will be given the opportunity to make an appointment with a Certified Advisor. This advisor will assist you with reviewing your transferable credits, navigating your degree plan, and selecting your classes. 

Walk-In Advising
Walk-in services are located in the Vista Central: Welcome and Admissions Center and are available on a first-come, first served basis. The sign-in line will close when Advising services have met the maximum capacity for the day. Click here to view information on walk-in services.

Transfer and former students who already know which courses they want to take may register on their own without meeting with an advisor. Students who choose to self-register that are prompted to receive a prerequisite override or enter an Alternate PIN will need to contact Vista Central for assistance.

Step 4 – Pay for Classes
Students are required to pay for their classes or ensure that their financial aid or applicable Veterans benefits are in place by the payment deadline or they will be dropped from courses and must re-register.
