Student Resources


WVNCC supports your online learning experience with services and resources designed to meet the unique needs of online students and to give online students the same quality experience that they would have on any of our campuses.

Through Blackboard Learn 9.1, our online learning platform, you are able to access course materials, communicate with instructors and classmates, submit assignments, take quizzes and exams, and track progress through your course(s). Each course has a dedicated area within Blackboard. Once you register for your first online course, you will have access to Blackboard.  Blackboard is accessed through the WVNCC Student Portal.
