At Western, we care about learning that lasts a lifetime. Whether you’re a student attending Western Nevada College for the first time or an individual returning to college to retool for the changing Nevada, we have degrees and programs to help you achieve your goals.
Our transfer degrees enable you to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in a variety of majors for a fraction of the cost of a university, while professional and applied technology programs provide the skills and industry credentials you need to start a new career in as little as eight weeks.
WNC is steeped with nearly 50 years of growth and educational excellence in Nevada. From our humble beginnings in Carson City to our expansion into the communities of Fallon in 1981 and Douglas County in 1997, we have helped students achieve their educational goals and dreams.
At WNC, we aim not only to ensure the success of students in our classrooms and academic programs but also to create holistic individuals who are prepared to excel in their chosen academic fields and serve as leaders in their communities.
We are proud of the college’s academic rigor, small class sizes, and personalized instruction taught by some of the very best faculty in the great state of Nevada. Staff members on our team also provide students with a positive and nurturing environment. This aids in students’ completion of academic goals and prepares them to actively participate in a robust workforce.
