Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

2.71 Average Rating
It is way cheaper to go to a community college to get your basics out of the way. I priced it and it is exaclty a $1000 cheaper than an university and you are learning the same thing you would be learning at a university. I highly recommend going here for the first 2 years and then transfering.
Jessica from Dayton, NV
Western Nevada College is great for the pursuit in an associates degree or a certificate in a specialized field. The prices are much cheaper than that of a traditional University, so you can get the same classes but for nearly a third of the cost. Plus, nearly everything is transferable to pursue a bachelors degree elsewhere, for those planning to get a 4 year degree.
Gary from CARSON CITY, NV
i checked school fees all over the country and i was blown away how expensive classes are. western nevada college offers you aa that fits the pell grant budget with room for books, software or other class essentials.
Therese from Minden, NV
Going to a school such as Western Nevada College is an excellent way to save on money. Many basic level classes at this school are the exact same content and difficulty-wise as top-flight universities so you might as well take them where they are cheaper. Also, if you rake up enough scholarships, you get a nice check back from the financial office that you can really use for anything.
