A non-traditional student is anyone who decides to return to college and/or who has characteristics that set them apart from the student who enters directly from high school. WWCC's student body
has a large percentage of non-traditional students. In fact, the average age of all WWCC students is 27. You could be a single parent, returning to school after a break of 10 to 15 years, or
someone who has been working for years and now needs to find a new career. We offer a variety of courses tailored to working adults including Internet courses that you can do at home, night
courses, and courses structured for shift workers.
There are a variety of services available to non-traditional students, including:
You are so important to Western Wyoming Community College! Over half of our students are part-time at one time or another. You have all kinds of goals and outside responsibilities so we want to

services. What's available? Support services such as tutoring, counseling, Children's Center, financial aid, career guidance, and online tools are there for you.

you pay for school? If you answered yes to either question you need to Apply for Admission. Make an
appointment to meet with an admissions counselor for guidance.
Remember to request that high school or GED transcripts be sent to WWCC Admissions. Submit official transcripts from all previously attended colleges.
