School Overview

Western Wyoming Community College (WWCC) is a 2-year community college in the city of Rock Springs, Wyoming. The college offers a large selection of two-year associates degrees, 1- to 2-year professional certificates, and a few four-year bachelor’s degrees (through a partnership with University of Wyoming).

Unlike most college campuses which are comprised of several independent buildings and structures, WWCC campus is almost entirely indoors–due to the severe winters and cold temperatures. The interior of the enclosed campus is connected via a network of hallways.

In addition to it central campus in Rock Springs, WWCC also has an extension campus in Green River, Wyoming. WWCC serves students from a region in Wyoming that covers about 10,500 square miles. Most students at WWCC come from the southwestern part of the state. Even though Wyoming is quite flat and desolate in many areas, it is also home to some of the most beautiful recreation areas in the nation, including Grand Teton National Park, Flaming Gorge National Park and Jackson Hole (a favorite destination spot for popular celebrities like Harrison Ford).

WWCC offers career-oriented and academic programs in Humanities, Social Sciences, Science and Mathematics, Business and Health Sciences. In total, the college offers degrees and certificates in over 100 fields and concentrations.
