The Central Texas Training Center will help displaced Vista College students complete their programs.
The Central Texas Business School made the announcement Thursday, after Vista College suddenly closed its doors to staff and students on Friday, October 8. The school has ceased all activities on its campuses, including at Killeen and College Station.
“Although we are in compliance with both accreditation and state / federal regulations, we cannot continue due to financial circumstances.”

Students said they received little notice, communication and options as some credits may not be transferred to other schools. The Central Texas Training Center said it would offer these students “as much academic credit as possible along with proportional tuition fee discounts,” according to the announcement.
This is how students can complete the same or a similar program, depending on the school, without having to start from scratch.
âWe are already enrolling students negatively impacted by the Vista situation; we also know there are many more we can help complete their education and achieve their career dreams, âsaid school principal Brian Sunshine.
The Central Texas Training Center also said staff will help students resolve loan cancellation and education allowance issues that concern the U.S. Department of Education and Veterans Affairs, which they choose whether or not to register.
Interested Vista College alumni can contact the school Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
