Fall semester at Western Nevada College is a little more than a month away so students should make sure they have taken care of their requirements to prepare for a successful year.

WNC’s variety of in-person and online classes gives students the flexibility to create a schedule that meets their personal needs. Refer to a schedule of classes online at wnc.edu/class-schedule/ to assist you in planning for fall semester.

However, students don’t have to start classes on Aug. 29. WNC offers instructional modes that will meet their needs. More than 20 available courses are classified as open entry, allowing students to enroll as late as the ninth week of the semester to complete the course and receive full credit. WNC also offers short-term and late-start classes beginning in October.

If you are planning to attend WNC for the first time, apply for admission at www.wnc.edu/starthere/. Continuing students can register for classes through their myWNC account.

To receive guidance on a career or scheduling, contact Counseling Services at 775-445-3267 or counseling@wnc.edu.
