8 Students rated Westmoreland County Community College

Hannah - 03/01/2019

Convenience of online classes as I have been employed full-time since high school graduation in 2017. Great starting place; small classroom sizes. WCCC offers a decent number of classes that will likely transfer to a 4 year university. The cost of tuition is affordable.

Kaitlyn - 03/01/2019

It's a great campus that allows students any number of opportunities to further themselves.

Raigan - 08/23/2018

Westmoreland County Community College is good at what it is - A transfer or associates degree college. The campus is small but well spaced, and has a nice ambiance. I never felt rushed to make it from one class to another, and there was always available parking where I needed. It doesn't provide a 4 year education, but does prepare students to transfer to a larger school in the future.

Sierra - 02/15/2018

I personally believe that it’s a great school. I hear a lot of great things about it and I know a lot of people that graduated from there who had nothing but good things to say about the school.

  5. What's unique about your campus?

    The best thing about my school is that the credits can transfer to pretty uch any institution in the area and the advisors help so much. When I transferred in from one semester at West Virginia University the transfer advisor helped me schedule all of my classes so that I would not get behind when I transferred to Point Park University at a later time. All of the professors are wonderful as well.

  8. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worse thing about WCCC would be that it's a commuter campus. Fortunately I live close enough to the school that it doesn't cost much in gas, but for other students it's a hassle. Not only is it uneconomical but if you're looking to make life long friends in college, this college isn't ideal. Sure the teachers are great and you're classmates might be nice, but when you only see each other in class two or three times a week, becoming friends and maintaining that friendship is difficult.

  9. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    If you're looking for a school where you hope to become friends with everyone in your class, this is not the place. When you see each other two or three times a week and only in certain classes, making and maintaining a friendship with someone is especially difficult. At WCCC there are no weekend dorm or apartment parties with your classmates. Essentially, the entire dorm room atmosphere is missing.

  10. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    Westmoreland is just a pit-stop for me. I usually talk about Indiana University of Pennsylvania. This was the first school I attended before I was side tracked. The student body is great and you'll feel very in touch with the faculty. There are a number of great undergraduate programs to choose from, and if you're interested they even have a nationally ranked mens basketball team. Quality social and academic clubs are available to keep you occupied outside of the classroom. You'll feel very welcome and in touch with everyone you meet
