West Virginia Junior College was established in 1892 in Charleston, West Virginia. WVJC expanded its program offerings, student services, and employer services to Monongalia and Harrison counties, establishing campuses in Morgantown, WV and Bridgeport, WV.
WVJC has continued to remain on the cutting edge of education to ensure that students have academic options that meet the demands of an ever-changing, technologically driven employment market. During these past several years, in addition to our other in demand programs, WVJC has developed Nursing and Network Administration/Security programs to help students take advantage of these growing fields.
In 2011, WVJC developed an online education delivery platform, known as WVJC Online, for several of its programs. The purpose of this online school was to support students who need to balance school with work and family. WVJC Online strives to maintain the same level of service students experience at the residential campus. The WVJC Online formula for student success and positive career outcomes has spread to the neighboring states of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, and Kentucky, turning WVJC Online into a regional online college that students can trust.
“West Virginia Junior College helped me understand the importance of getting a college degree and striving to be the fearless person I need to be to own my own company. I didn’t believe that I could get back in school until a good friend and student at WVJC told me I could do it. The experience is life changing and will ensure you a better future.” – Brandon Cage, WVJC Graduate
