Western Nevada College Reviews
This is my latest attempt at getting my Bachelor's degree. All the classes in this program are online - as many are these days. But online classes are different than they used to be and this program has an accelerated schedule - I am loving it all so far. The teachers are tough, but not too tough and the pace is amazing! Not for the faint of heart, however. Bravo WNC for coming up with a schedule for busy, working adults that is designed to get us through quickly!
So far so good! I have taken online classes through WNC before. Some were good experiences and some not so good. This schedule so far is amazing. You do not really have time to catch your breath between session, but getting your degree quicker is a much better way to do it.
I am a freshman at Western Nevada College partaking in their “Jumpstart” program. Basically, through this institution, I am able to take duel credit high school/college classes as a junior. I am enrolled in 15 credit semesters and am a full time student. WNC has made attending college at an early age extremely easy! The staff and instructors are so helpful and honest and are always there for you. I feel welcome and accepted. I am receiving and amazing education for a wonderful price. I absolutely love WNC.
