"Please stay away from this school. If you have a diploma or GED, please consider other options before committing to this school. For example; community colleges or universities offer the same programs but cheaper and you can either get certified or get an Associate's. Another option is to join the military, because the military has way more career choices to choose from. They pay you to train with no cost to you. After training is complete, there's ample amount of job and travel opportunities. The military pays well. I used my VA benefits to attend this school. I graduated 2 years ago with my universal EPA certification and honors and landed a job before I graduated but it didn't pay anything compared to what I made in the military; was making $10/hr. Unfortunately the job didn't work out. So, I was jobless went to vista college career service for help and what a waste of time. I'm just glad that I never had to come out of pocket for this school. I did end up having to owe the VA money because vista college messed up on my enrollment certification. Luckily the VA saw their hick up and let me go free. I just ended up Reenlisting. Long story short, consider your options because this is a very very very last resort kind of school. Veterans keep your eyes and options open. The HVAC instructors were awesome and knowledgeable. I did have an injury that happened at school and the school paid for all of my medical bills. They also gave me a nice Pell Grant."

"Stay away from Vista College. Waste of time and money. They will not do much for helping you get a job. Some of the people in hvac ended up with sales jobs selling thermostats and other add on's to air conditioning systems. Stay away from Vista College."

"Veterans stay away from Vista College. If you remember your recruiter when you were joining the military and promise made. Well it is the same thing at Vista College. Your schedule will not be what they tell you. Vista will add extra days calling them makeup days. They will track you every 15 minutes. If you are not there every 15 minutes they will dock you 15 minutes until you missed enough to to fail and or cost you your VA for the month. If you are like a lot of veterans and you are not able to stand for long periods of time. They will not let you sit down if yournot in the classroom. Vista has cameras every where and they are always watching and calling the instructors. 5 minutes late from break dock 15 minutes. Vista will promise you a bbq at the end of each month and not once deliver on what they said. Vista College is all about the money. Veterans I give fair warning stay away from Vista College"
