WNC Recognized for Online Education

Affordable Colleges Online has recently recognized Western Nevada College for the scope of its distance learning educational program and its affordability.

WNC was singled out after AC Online analyzed more than 2,000 of the country’s accredited college and university online degree programs.

“According to our research, Western Nevada College offers an exceptional collection of distance learning options at a very affordable price. This combination of quality, affordability and flexibility earned your college a place on our list of the online colleges in Nevada that win on affordability,” reads AC Online’s review of WNC.

AC Online reported that WNC’s annual tuition cost for resident students in Nevada is $2,700. That’s significantly less than what students are paying at Nevada State College in Henderson ($4,498); University of Nevada, Reno ($6,602); University of Nevada, Las Vegas ($6,705); and Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village ($8,439), according to AC Online.

Specifically, AC Online found that “Western Nevada College provides numerous online courses to students interested in distance learning. As an online college in Nevada, the school provides learning through the Canvas Web-based protocol. E-learning is available in subjects that include accounting, politics, real estate, sociology and more. The college also offers flex classes through which students can either attend classes in person or watch instruction remotely, or alternate between the two.”

WNC has enhanced its online class offerings by using new technology to capture some of its lectures on high-definition cameras, making them available to students online and through their smartphones, laptops and other devices, whenever students want to view them. This technology offers students the flexibility to attend class, or watch the lecture live or at a time they choose.

WNC Carson City is planning to add a third classroom for lecture capture classes in the coming year.
