Facilities at Vista College - El Paso: The building of the school isn't like other schools. We don't have the many facilities that others have but what we do have, works for me.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Vista College - El Paso: The office staff at the financial office are really helpful when it comes to helping you apply for financial aid. They do explain terms and contracts. They work even harder to collect on the loans that were offered through the school. There really isn't a grace period, you are given a week from the start of school before requiring monthly payments on those loans. If you miss a payment they do pull you out of class, two payments they advice you are at risk of being denied access to class, and three well they ask you top pay first before being allowed to return. They do state that they offer waivers for payments while in school but that they are frowned upon and for special circumstances.

Student Body at Vista College - El Paso: The typical students are ok, some straight out of high school, others a GED program and all looking for career advancement. Most students there ,like myself, are low income, heavily relying on financial aid, and school loans to finance the degree program we've chosen. Most students attending at my school come a Hispanic/Latino descent (like myself) and are mostly Spanish speakers. The only languages I've heard being spoken at school are English and Spanish. In regards to diversity challenges, I have seen none thus far.

Academic Flexibility at Vista College - El Paso: I personally work graveyards, our school week starts on Monday morning (8am-1pm) meaning I start Monday morning , don't get a chance to sleep until Tuesday after 1:00 pm. They offer am and pm classes, but pm classes conflict with my graveyard schedule. I am enrolled in the Medical assisting/assistant program and some courses give very little instruction as in example CPT coding, we are told use your book, and each other, this is what code looks like, and how to find it in the book. We are not given the history of coding, the process of what is coded and where or why. What is worst is that we are giving the Medical Billing and Coding BEFORE the medical terminology course, meaning you're left on your own to figure out what disease/illness your are trying to code or even what it deals with. With cell phones and laptops not being allowed in class room you are reduced to begging the teacher for help as you have no other tools to identify, define, or establish the meaning of an illness so it could be classified.

Campus Resources at Vista College - El Paso: Our school does not offer anything extra curricular, no student centers, libraries, or any campus activities. The only thing close to a campus activity would be the medical club. A club that accepts all applicants, and basically serves to fund raise for graduation cap and gown costs. The medical club does not usually convene outside school hours, or in support for the community , community activities/events, or encourage any real community involvement whatsoever.

Campus Resources at Vista College - El Paso: The usage of on site computers require active enrollment in a computer related class, or usage before or after regular school hours. For the most part internet speeds are usually acceptable. Wireless access is not available at my school. Printing is only allowed for school related work, and if there is printing paper available, and the printers are working (in my personal experience this was a very common lingering issue). Any personal equipment such as cell phones, laptops , and/or tablets are not allowed with the classroom. Also no electronic materials are not allowed unless provided for by our school and approved for our specific degree program.

College Junior

Online Courses at Vista College - El Paso: Online courses for my degree program aren't available unless for a catastrophic event as major illness/disability and only for 20 weeks out of the whole degree program. I have never had the option to take online classes , instead we are required to attend school regularly within a classroom setting.
