Wenatchee Valley College will continue to offer the majority of classes online for winter and spring quarters, due to safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Classes will be offered in winter and spring in the same ways they are currently being offered: all lecture classes will be online, and a small number of approved hands-on classes will be able to meet in person following strict health and safety protocols.

Until the college receives further guidance from the local health districts or the governor’s office, both WVC campuses will also remain closed to the public and to any students not attending limited in-person classes.

Those who are on campus or are visiting campus are being asked to wear a mask or face covering, practice good hygiene, social distancing and to stay home if sick. The residence hall will remain open to residents in a limited capacity, but social distancing has been implemented.

WVC is currently offering a variety of resources for students:

  • Apply online – students looking to take classes this winter can apply and register by Monday, Dec. 21. Apply at edu/GetStarted and view courses at wvc.edu/Courses.
  • Online resources – find resources for online learning or contact information for key student resources at edu/Online.
  • STEPP – the Student Tuition Easy Payment Plan (STEPP) lets students pay tuition using a flexible payment schedule (edu/PaymentPlan).
  • Online readiness orientation – a free, self-guided orientation on how to use online learning tools and succeed in online classes (edu/Distance).
  • Virtual Assistance – get live help from staff in educational planning, financial aid, registration and admission, counseling, IT and more (wvc.edu/VA).
  • Live chat – get help with simple questions quickly using the live chat feature on our website (wvc.edu).
