Welcome to WNCC! Every important journey requires careful preparation. Your adjustment during the first semester of college can have a major impact on the remainder of your college experience. In general, students who attend college orientation programs are better prepared academically to start their first semester of college. They also have an advantage because they are able to acclimate themselves to their new campus community before classes begin.WNCC invites you to participate in our orientation program which consists of two very unique programs offered:
New Student Orientation (NSO)
NSO gives you and your parents the opportunity to learn about resources that support student success at WNCC. We will provide more information regarding transfer and career resources, financing your education and your academic division. You will have the opportunity to meet with faculty advisors, counselors and financial aid specialists. You can also tour our facilities and receive answers to your specific questions.
