Statement: Western Nevada College is dedicated to post-secondary educational access for all Nevadans and welcomes all students who meet our admissions requirements.

Section 1: Statement

  1. WNC welcomes people of all ages and a broad range of abilities. We also work with businesses, agencies, and school districts to provide instruction at off site locations, via contract courses and custom-tailored educational experiences. Many high school students take advantage of this access, and we often have students enrolled in college classes during their high school years. In this manner, we welcome cooperation with public, private, and charter schools.
  2. Our college strategic plan calls for heavy enrollment growth in both daytime and evening classes in the future. All of our current activities are focused on supporting this plan and maximizing the use of our current facilities for the support of post-secondary educational opportunities for Nevadans. During this transitional period, we do not expect to undertake any major new classroom or laboratory construction at any of our sites. Therefore, we are not able to offer use of our facilities for educational activities which are not post-secondary in nature.
