Introducing Vista Community College

Welcome to Vista Community College. Vista, one of California's 107 community colleges, is located at 2020 Milvia St. in downtown Berkeley, in one of the world's great education centers. It is only two blocks from the University of California at Berkeley. The college serves the northern part of the Peralta Community College District. Model Programs in American Sign Language, biotechnology, business, computer information systems, the liberal arts and social sciences, place Vista on the cutting edge of community college education in California. Classes convene at the college's urban setting in downtown Berkeley and at the University of California.

As a Vista student, you form part of a thriving college community that mirrors the Bay Area's ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic diversity. Your classmates include single parents, full-time workers, reentry women, career changers and high school students. Working together and with Vista faculty, you create a dynamic environment where interdisciplinary education and teamwork prepare you for many career options.

At Vista, your success is always our first priority. We continually adapt programs and services to meet your needs. Day, evening and Saturday classes guarantee that you can finish any Vista job training or academic program in two years. Our exceptional partnership with U.C. lets you complete your lower division transfer requirements in evening and Saturday classes held on its Berkeley campus. Academic and career counseling, combined with strong student support services, provide you with excellent preparation for transfer to public and private universities, and for success in today's demanding job market.
