University description (as per official university website)

History

Western Wyoming Community College, the fifth of seven community colleges in Wyoming, was established in the Fall of 1959. Through the efforts of a citizens’ committee, a campaign was begun, an election was held, and the College and the original district were created. In September, 1959, forty students enrolled for college credit courses with five full time faculty teaching during the evening.

In 1960-61, the College moved to Reliance, five miles from Rock Springs, to occupy the former Reliance High School and daytime classes began. In September, 1964, the original district was expanded to include all communities within Sweetwater County, a new Board of Trustees was elected, and the official name of the College became Western Wyoming Community College.

Consistent growth of the College led to the inauguration of a $1,822,000 building program on October 4, 1966. On November 11, 1967, ground-breaking ceremonies marked the beginning of construction on a new campus, and completion in June, 1969. Growth continued. In March, 1973, voters approved a $1,780,000 bond issue to provide additional instructional facilities. The new vocational-technical education building was ready for occupancy in Fall, 1974, and the college center building was completed. In 1976, three residence halls were constructed to provide on-campus housing, made possible by a loan from the State Farm Loan Board. The College was granted accreditation by the North Central Association in April, 1976.

Again, in 1981, the citizens of Sweetwater County demonstrated their support for Western Wyoming Community College by authorizing a building project that cost in excess of $63,000,000. This major expansion created one of the most modern and beautiful community college campuses in the West. Students who enrolled in 1985 were the first to use new student housing, the Green River Center and the Technology and Industry shops. Between the Fall of 1987 and Fall of 1988, a new student commons area, classrooms and labs, offices, Children’s Center, studios, and theatre were occupied. A new chemistry laboratory was completed for the Fall of 1993. Construction of a fifth residence hall was approved in December, 1994, and completed in August, 1997.
Student numbers have increased from 40 in 1959 to over 5,000 in 2002. These figures include all students – varying ages and interests, enrolled in the credit, non-credit and extension programs. The number of full-time students enrolled for college credit courses has increased to approximately 1,000, and full-time equivalent students (FTE) has increased to approximately 1,800.


Financial Aid


Students who receive financial assistance at WWCC through Federal, State, or Institutional Financial Aid Programs have a legal responsibility to maintain Satisfactory Progress towards a degree objective. This requires the Financial Aid Office to make a determination whether applicants are eligible for financial assistance based on their prior academic record, regardless of whether or not they received aid. These guidelines represent minimal standards. They do not necessarily coincide with the requirements students must fulfill to initially receive aid nor the number of credits a student is expected to earn in order to complete a two-year degree in two years’ time. Students will be considered in good standing and eligible to receive financial assistance for WWCC if maintaining normal academic progress towards their degree as required by Federal and State regulations and the following policies and conditions.

Duration of Eligibility: Students will only be eligible for financial assistance for a specific number of credit hours. At WWCC the limit is 96 credit hours. This includes all attempted and transferred hours.

Satisfactory Completion: Satisfactory means a student has received a minimum grade of D or P. Grades of I (incomplete), F (failure) and W (withdrawal) are not considered successfully completed classes. Repeat courses will be counted in attempted and completed credits. The Financial Aid Office has the right to refuse aid to students who abuse the inclusion of repeat courses to obtain funding. Inappropriate selection of courses is not an acceptable reason for not maintaining satisfactory academic progress. Students should contact an advisor.

Minimum GPA and Credit Completion: Students must maintain at least a 2.00 cumulative GPA.
