Online and Distance Learning
At the Colleges of Northern Wyoming Community College District (NWCCD), we value student success and how technology can be used by students to access information and learning opportunities. That’s why we offer courses face-to-face, online, hybrid (combination of face-to-face and online), and through interactive video conferencing — all with flexibility in mind. It’s another way we do everything we can to help you succeed and earn your degree.
