Thank you for your interest in visiting Northwest Vista College (NVC)! One of the best ways to learn more about us is to visit our phenomenal campus, so please take advantage of one of our campus tour and information session opportunities. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Please note that Northwest Vista College will be closing at 12:00 p.m. on Dec. 19th and will be closed through January 2nd for the Winter Break. We will reopen for normal business hours on January 3rd, 2018.



Our campus tours are approximately forty-five minutes to an hour in length and consist of a walk-through of our beautiful campus and various academic buildings, starting at the Cypress Campus Center (CCC). Tours are led by current NVC students. NVC tour guides will provide you with a candid view of campus, covering our history and student life, as well as program offerings and student services. Tours will be followed by an Admissions Information Session that will inform students about the admissions and enrollment process. Following the information session, students will have the opportunity to submit an application or complete their enrollment steps in our Vista Central computer lab.

Note: Campus Tours will be available beginning January 23, 2018. Information sessions will still be offered between January 3 and January 22nd on Monday afternoons at 2 p.m. and Thursday mornings at 9 a.m. 


Information sessions are offered on Monday afternoons at 2 p.m. and Thursday mornings at 9 a.m. by appointment only. All information sessions will begin in Room 126 in the Cypress Campus Center (CCC), the office just past the cafeteria when you enter the building form the parking lot

Request an Information Session

Once your RSVP is received, your visit will be reviewed and scheduled by our staff within two business days. Information sessions are scheduled based on availability and on a first-come-first-serve basis, so schedule early! Once your visit has been scheduled, you will receive a confirmation email of your date and time.



For groups of 10+ students

Group tours are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and should be requested as soon as possible to secure availability. Once you have requested a tour, a Vista Central staff member will contact you to arrange your tour and provide confirmation details.  Please do not plan for a tour if you have not received confirmation.
The maximum capacity for group tours is 60 students, with one chaperone per ten students.  However, larger groups can be accommodated with advance notice as staffing allows.  Tours are subject to change based on availability staff.

Groups tours are approximately 45 minutes to one hour in length.  Students are advised to wear comfortable shoes and dress according to the weather.  Tours may be cancelled or rescheduled due to inclement weather. 


Group Tours will be available beginning January 23, 2018.

For special requests beyond available dates or questions, please contact us at or call Elizabeth "Bits" Murray  at 210-486-4669.


We look forward to serving you soon!
