WNC devoted to students during COVID-19 pandemic
Western Nevada College shares the concerns of our community during this challenging time. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and respond in ways to support our students, faculty, staff and community.
WNC classes are being held remotely and online through the end of spring semester. Our faculty and staff are working closely with our students through this transition, and we are providing many resources to support them. A variety of resources are available to students at http://www.wnc.edu/students/.
While the campus is closed, the college continues to serve its students remotely using email, phone and video conferencing. The WNC Fallon team can be reached at:
