Online Learning


Welcome to Online Learning at WNCC!


Taking courses online gives students the flexibility to complete coursework outside the realm of traditional lecture classes. Online students are able to decide when to work on an online course during the week, but there are still due dates and schedules to follow to help students be successful. Online classes at WNCC use the Blackboard learning management system. You will need to have reliable computer and Internet access to complete online courses.

Registering for an online class is easy. For current degree seeking WNCC students, simply review the current online offerings below, log into your Portal and Academic Planning tool, select the course you wish to take, and request review from your academic advisor. Once the course has been approved, you may register using your Academic Planning tool once again.

New degree seeking students to WNCC will first need to fill out an Application for Admission. Once this is complete you will be notified and given an academic advisor who will then walk you through the registration process.

Non-degree seeking students can fill out a Registration Form and email or fax the form to the Student Services office at 308-635-6732. The cost of online classes are the same as traditional classes offered at WNCC. Visit Tuition and Fees to learn more about WNCC's tuition and fee schedule.

Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities sometimes decide that taking online courses will be the solution to their accommodation needs. You may be considering online study for the same reasons. Please be aware that studying online can create the need for a whole different set of accommodations. You should enroll in an online course only after you have taken the time to carefully consider the requirements of the study and your strengths and weaknesses. The staff in the Online Learning and Services office will work closely with the Disabilities Service office and your instructor to address your needs.

Accessibility in Blackboard Learn 9.1 provides information about ongoing improvements that are being made in Blackboard Learn. If you encounter difficulty with accessing your course materials, please make sure to inform your instructor. The Online Learning and Services office will work together with your instructor and the Disabilities Service Office to find a solution.
