If you haven’t heard, at Western Nevada College you don’t have to start the semester when it officially begins.

Open entry (self-paced), as well as short-term and late-start courses, give students many options and modalities to receive their instruction well after the semester started back in late January.

Self-paced courses are available in Applied Industrial Technology, Aviation, Biology, Business Administration and Management, Core Humanities, Construction, Education (Nevada School Law), English (Composition I and II and Introduction to Creative Writing), Environmental Science, Finance, Information Systems Computer Applications, Mathematics (Fundamentals of College Mathematics, College Algebra and Precalculus), Management Science, Music (Music Appreciation, as well as Recording Techniques), Philosophy (Introduction to Ethics) and Psychology (General Psychology). These classes have more flexible enrollment deadlines between now and the end of the semester (May 21) and a self-paced structure for completing coursework and assignments within the semester.


The deadline to register for these courses is April 1.

Short-term and late-start courses begin on March 28, accommodating an individual’s busy work and family schedule. Some courses previously offered have already reached their enrollment capacity so register as soon as possible. The following classes can be taken online:

• Applied Industrial Technology Projects (AIT 200)

• American Sign Language II (AM 146) and IV (AM 148)
