Public Notification Of Nondiscrimination In Career-Technical Opportunities

This is to advise students, parents, employees and the general public that all career and technical education opportunities are offered at West Virginia Northern Community College without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

As a comprehensive community college, West Virginia Northern’s Wheeling, Weirton, and New Martinsville campuses offer a wide variety of programs and courses in the liberal arts and sciences, career-technical education, work place training, developmental studies, and community and continuing education. Many courses and some programs are available online as a distance education component. Under an open-door enrollment policy, the College admits all adults desiring postsecondary education. High school students recommended by their schools for early entrance also are admitted. The College admits students as degree seeking or non-degree seeking, or as early entrance high school students or those enrolling in continuing education. Some programs are limited enrollment with specific entrance requirements, including Health Sciences.

Applications and information about WVNCC may be obtained from any Campus Service Center, through local high school counselor offices, or online at the College’s website at www.wvncc.edu. There are separate applications for general admission, continuing education and early entrance/home schooled students. General admission student applications may be submitted online or at any Campus Service Center. All general admission students must select a Program of Study at the time of application for admission. A separate application for admission into a Health Sciences program is required in addition to the general application. Student placement skills information is required for all admitted general admission students to determine academic preparation for course placement and program entry. This assessment should be completed prior to enrollment and entry into specific courses and programs.
