Admissions & Records
How do I apply for admission?
At WNC our application for admission is online. Click on “Apply Now” at the bottom of any website page.
How do I get my WNC transcripts or send them to another school or employer?
All students may order official transcripts through the National Student Clearinghouse for $4 per transcript plus a $2.25 handling fee per address. A credit card and email address are required. Students who are sending transcripts to colleges within the Nevada System of Higher Education (UNR, UNLV, TMCC, GBC, CSN, NSC) are not charged a fee to send an electronic transcript.
How do I get my credits evaluated for transfer?
Degree/certificate seeking students need to request that official copies of transcripts from other schools, testing or other training sources be sent directly to WNC Admissions and Records. They also need to submit a Petition for Transfer Credit Evaluation form. Allow up to 2-4 weeks for the evaluation to be processed. When completed, an email will be sent to the student, who will be able to view their transfer credit in myWNC and run a degree audit report to determine how transfer credits apply toward their intended degree or certificate program.
What are “Prerequisite Holds” on my account and how do I get them removed?
Students should check the Course Catalog to ensure they have met the prerequisites for the classes they intend to enroll in; it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that prerequisites are met.
Students currently enrolled at WNC in a class that fulfills a prerequisite may enroll in the subsequent class. If the prerequisite class is not successfully completed, the student may be dropped from the subsequent class that required the prerequisite. For further assistance, contact Counseling Services.
How do I change my residency?
There are a number of factors used to determine residency. Information and applications to change residency status may be found at online.
What is Academic Probation and how do I fix it?
Degree/certificate seeking students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. Students who do not meet this requirement will be placed on academic probation and will need to meet with a counselor in order to register for classes.
What are the Payment Deadlines and Drop Dates?
Pertinent dates and deadlines can be found by clicking on “Dates and Deadlines” on the Admissions and Records website. You may add important dates to your calendar.
How do I reset my password?
All active students have a WNC Anywhere account to access myWNC, Canvas, wireless internet, the library and the library’s research databases.
Students use their student ID number with a “W” in front of it as their login. New students will receive an activation code and can go to wnc.edu/activate to activate their accounts and create a password, or to receive a new activation code. Once activated, students who forgot their password can visit https://www.wnc.edu/forgot/password/
How do I apply for graduation?
Each student seeking a degree or a certificate of achievement is required to submit an Application for Graduation to Admission and Records with a $25 payment receipt. Students enrolled in their last required class(es) should apply at the beginning of that semester.
