How to Enroll For Online Fall Classes
In The COVID-19 Era

Living in a digital world has changed the way that we look at so many things, education included. During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic these past few months, so many people experienced layoffs, furloughs, and company closures. While our campuses experienced temporary closures, like so many other schools across the country, WVJC Online continued to prepare students for a career. WVJC Online offers convenience and flexibility for our online associate degree programs to make earning your degree more attainable. The majority of WVJC Online students are nontraditional – they already have families, kids, jobs, etc., and need a flexible schedule. This is a great advantage that our online students have over traditional college students. If something similar to the recent pandemic were to occur again, our students will be able to continue on their degree path without many changes to their daily routine.

WVJC Online has a team of admissions advisors committed to helping you achieve your goals. Once a potential student has taken the first step of deciding it is time to change their life, our advisors go to work for you. The most important part of the admissions process is the virtual college tour, which potential students can complete from the comfort of their own home in front of their computers. The purpose of the virtual college tour is to determine how WVJC may be able to assist you to take the next step toward meeting your career goals. Virtual college tours include information that all potential students are looking for  – information about their fast-track program of interest, certifications that they may be eligible to sit for, how our online portal works, our hands-on personalized financial aid process, and our dedicated career management team.

WVJC Online enrolls future graduates who are motivated to start or further their career in their chosen field. If you think this describes you, request information today and an admissions advisor will be in touch shortly!

Yolanda Bass – Student Highlight

WVJC graduate, Yolanda Bass, enrolled in college at WVJC in 2013 because of the fast-track programs, location of the school, and friendliness of the staff and faculty. She graduated with an Associate Degree in Business Administration in 2014. After receiving her business training, she worked as an administrative assistant.

Yolanda always had an interest in the medical field, and in 2019, she decided she wanted to further her education at WVJC. Yolanda applied, and was accepted, into the fall 2019 Associate Degree in Nursing program at WVJC Charleston. She said, “I attended WVJC previously and I loved the smaller classes where people know you by name, instead of just a number.”

The staff and faculty at WVJC follow “WE CARE” values and strive to help empower change by creating opportunity for students. Yolanda said her favorite part of attending WVJC is the friendliness of the staff and the sense of community. She said, “I have built friendships that have become great for networking.” We asked Yolanda who her favorite teacher is and she said, “I love Kishia, she is always happy and her personality is contagious.” She further stated, “Kishia inspires us to do our best and is always available to offer help or answer questions.”

After graduation, Yolanda would like to work at Charleston Area Medical Center as a registered nurse. Yolanda is looking forward to financial stability and a flexible schedule as a registered nurse so she can spend more time with her daughter.
