Career Pathways & Advising has been of great use for me. They helped me create a resume and made me realize all of the campus activities that I participated in were worth writing about. Molly Tamirat 2019 Graduate

First-term advising

After being admitted to WNCC, you'll work with an Admissions Counselor to get you started on the righth foot. Then, you'll want to set up a first-term advising appointment to help understand how to navigate the student portal, how to register for first semester classes, and how to start your college journey successfully.
