A Killeen trade school with locations in Arkansas, New Mexico and across Texas abruptly closed Friday to the surprise of students and some staff.
According to students of the Killeen campus, an email was sent out Friday afternoon informing students that the campus was closed due to financial circumstances.
The email said the college would assist students in finding transfer programs for Vista College course credit, but as of Monday Vista College is inaccessible via phone.
Vista College, 1001 S. Fort Hood St. in Killeen, could not be reached for comment Monday through corporate or local phone numbers.
The Killeen Vista College website was seen Monday still advertising the start of classes today, Oct. 11.
The college specializes in healthcare, business, and technology trade certificates, according to the website.
Vista College, headquartered in Richardson, also has Texas campuses in Beaumont, Longview, College Station, El Paso which were all closed as of Friday.
This report will be updated.
