Welcome to WNC
On behalf of the Western Nevada College family, it is my pleasure to welcome you to WNC!
We strive to be good neighbors and contribute to the economic well-being of the areas we serve. Having been established more than 50 years ago, WNC has deep roots and is a vital part of the fabric of our communities.
From our 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. 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.
At WNC, we aim to 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 stand ready to help you on your educational journey!
