Over 120 College Credit classes are being taught over the Internet this semester. According to Star Valley Coordinator, “Courses will not only apply towards Western Wyoming Community College degrees, but may also be transferred to other institutions. Of course, if you’re looking to start your college degree, contact us at 886-3834 and let us help you.” In addition, all college credit classes may be audited by individuals who do not desire the credit but want to obtain the information taught in the courses. Tuition does not change, but completing class assignments and taking tests becomes optional, and no grade appears on the transcript.
This semester, two college night classes are being offered: Waterbased Media and Nurse Assistant. As our coordinator explained, “We’re delighted to be able to once again offer local college credit classes. The Watercolor is available not only for those who want to learn or improve art skills, but will fulfill a general education requirement. Successful completion of the Nurse Assistant allows students to be prepared to sit for the State of Wyoming exam to become certified and qualified to join the workforce.”
Six high school concurrent classes (high school courses in which the student may receive college credit) are available this semester. Western employees have already started assisting students with registration procedures, and will be returning to the high school during the next couple of weeks. One of the requirements for concurrent registration is for parents to approve their student’s classes. Those whose child has registered will receive either an e-mail or a text message asking for approval. Unfortunately, the message does not include a subject line, so please be aware of this.
Non-credit classes include: Pottery, Digital Photography, Lone Star Quilt, Cardio Dance Fitness, Tai Chi, Circuit Training, Yoga, Natural Health, Dog Obedience, Understanding Family Violence, Electoral College, Boiling Water Canning, and gardening classes.
For those who cannot or do not wish to attend classes, hundreds of Non-Credit Internet classes are available, as well. The entire listing can be found at www.ed2go.com/wwcc. Several options are available:
1) Instructor Led Courses. These six-week courses begin on the second Wednesday of each month, and provide not only personal enrichment opportunities but Teacher Recertification Credit, Nursing CEUs, and vocational classes and certificates, as well.
2) Self-Paced Tutorials. These classes start anytime at the stu- dent’s convenience, but must be completed in 12 weeks.
3) Career Training Programs. Much more extensive than the other two class options, these programs can be completed between 6 and 18 months, and will help students prepare for employment and national certifications.
Registration for all classes and workshops will be held at the Western Outreach office (247 N. Washington in Afton) January 18, 19, and 20, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. You may choose to mail in your registration. A form has been provided on the back of the book. Phone-in registration is also available for those using a Visa or MasterCard. NOTE: Although registrations for some non-credit classes will be accepted later in the semester, early registration is encouraged. Tuition must be paid at the time of registration.
