Missed the start of spring semester? That doesn’t mean you can’t start now at Western Nevada College, or maybe current students want to add another class.

WNC has a number of late-start options that begin next month including online classes in biology, auto mechanics, construction, political science, health care, advanced manufacturing and computer information technology/CISCO.

Individuals who haven’t attended WNC before can start by applying for admission at wnc.edu/starthere/. Late-start classes also enable students to resume their studies at WNC or perhaps add another class if it fits into their schedule for work and/or family commitments.
