Founded in 1969 in St. Louis, Missouri, Vatterott College opened as a career training institution under the name of Urban Technical Centers, Inc. The college has undergone several name changes and became Vatterott College when it obtained degree granting authority in 1989. Since its inception, Vatterott College has expanded into a multi-campus institution with 19 campuses located in 9 states across the Midwest. The college provides career focused training and educational opportunities in the health and dental, business, computer science, legal, and various technical fields. Vatterott offers certificate and diploma programs as well as associate and bachelor's degree programs. GI Jobs has named Vatterott College one of its "Military Friendly Schools."
Vatterott College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).
Faculty members have industry experience, according to the school's website, giving them real-world insight into the subjects they teach. Students will hone their skills on industry-standard equipment. Online students have the ability to communicate with their instructors via email.
With 19 different locations, student life varies from campus to campus. However, Vatterott is a commuter school and does not provide on-campus student housing. Campuses are located in some of the Midwest's most interesting cities and towns, affording students access to a wide variety of cultural and recreational options. Online students have the flexibility of being able to study at a time that is convenient for them with round-the-clock access to study materials. Students also have access to their instructors and peers via online discussion boards, as well as email. Among other things, the Career Placement Office assists students with resume building, interview preparation, and job fair opportunities.
