Western Nevada College is a vital part of the fabric of our community. We strive to be good neighbors and contribute to the economic well-being of the counties we serve. Our programs are preparing a robust job force, filling some of the most integral positions in manufacturing, nursing and technology.
Western is the ideal place to get started. Many students complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree at WNC for a fraction of the cost of the university. We are large enough to have the courses and programs important to student success, while still being small enough to treat each student as an individual. We offer online degrees and programs that enable individuals to take classes while maintaining their commitments to work and family.
Our college has been voted more than once to be among the most beautiful campuses in the country. Our main campus, located in Nevada’s capital, is nestled in the foothills of the Sierras and minutes from Lake Tahoe. Our students enjoy access to hiking, skiing, biking, boating and other outdoor recreation.
We invite you to discover your individual potential at Western Nevada.
