    Thank you for choosing West Virginia Northern Community College to further your education. Below are several items you need to know in order to begin the application process. Incomplete applications cannot be considered.

    1. In order to apply you must:
      • Submit a WVNCC Admissions Application and be accepted into the College for the Fall 2020 semester.Be eligible to register for college-level English and Math courses with no supplemental coursework needed.
      • Have official high school and all prior college transcripts sent to WVNCC directly from each institution.
      • Submit a separate Allied Health Application for each desired program.
      • Email a resume to
      • Each program has specific selection criteria, timelines, and associated costs. Refer to the Program page for details.
    2. Selection of candidates is continuous and early application is highly recommended. Missing requirements are communicated to applicants via WVNCC student email. It is the responsibility of the applicant to check this email regularly. Official transcripts should arrive sufficiently prior to the deadline to allow at least 5 business days for processing.
    3. Requirements for selection are minimal and must be met prior to review of the application. The majority of candidates exceed these requirements and, therefore, meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee acceptance into a program. Selection of the class is at the discretion of program officials and is final.
    4. Candidates must achieve a “C” or better in all program courses and be able to pass a Physical Examination, Background Check, and Drug Screening. Details will be provided upon acceptance.
    5. Students are responsible for all financial obligations required in the application process and program that include, but are not limited to, tuition and fees, transportation, meals, physical exams, drug testing, background checks, uniforms, supplies, textbooks, course and testing fees. Applicants must be prepared to pay a $200 deposit at the time of acceptance to reserve a spot in their program of choice; this non-refundable payment is applied toward the student’s program expenses for the Fall 2020 semester.

    IMPORTANT: If you have ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor for any reason, state and national credentialing boards, licensing boards, and other agencies which require criminal background checks on potential employees and students may deny you employment or placement in certain settings, even if you have completed all academic requirements. Please contact the Program Director if you have any questions.
