What is CollegeNOW! 

CollegeNOW! provides high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. The partnership between area high schools and WNCC helps high school students get a jump start on their college education, gain early exposure to different career tracks, and experience college-level courses at half the price of regular tuition.

Who is a CollegeNOW! student?


If you’re academically minded, independent, responsible, and a mature high school junior or senior, you may have what it takes to be a CollegeNOW! student. We offer college courses in 24 of our service area high schools, with options to take classes on one of our three WNCC campuses, online, or in some instances, at your high school.
