eLearning – Future Students
Welcome Future Students!
Online courses, degree, diploma, and certificate programs offer students the flexibility to pursue a college education or enhance their skills while working, caring for family, and attending to other relationships and responsibilities.
Curriculum: WCC has several online degrees, diplomas, and certificate programs that can be completed entirely online. Additionally, there are even more programs in which most courses can be completed online. See the Online Programs page for more information.
Continuing Education: Distance Education courses are also offered through the WCC Continuing Education division. Many online learning options are available, like internet marketing, digital photography, Microsoft Office programs and more. Visit our Continuing Education Distance Learning Website for more information on these non-credit online courses.
