President's Welcome

PresidentwelcomeWelcome to Westmoreland County Community College. We are excited that you are considering
Westmoreland to begin your educational journey.

Whatever your interest, Westmoreland offers a variety of options to meet your academic and career goals. Whether you want to earn an associate degree, transfer that degree to a baccalaureate program at a four-year university or prepare for a career, we can help you succeed.

We offer more than 65 transfer and career-track degree programs, and stackable certificates that
provide you with “on ramps and off ramps” to immediate employment and advanced education.

prestigious colleges and universities including California University of Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburgh (Oakland/Greensburg/Johnstown), Seton Hill University, Saint Vincent College, Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania State University, to name a few.

We know our students lead busy lives so we offer flexible scheduling at our nine locations, including the Youngwood campus and the Bushy Run, Latrobe, Mon Valley, New Kensington, Fayette County and Indiana County education centers.

This year we are proud to open our new facility, the Advanced Technology Center located at RIDC Westmoreland in Mount Pleasant. The ATC offers programs in energy, industrial technology, manufacturing and more for new students and incumbent workers who need technical skills to advance in their current jobs.

Additionally, approximately 200 courses are available online each semester. So, with our nine locations and online classes you can learn where and when it’s convenient for you.

To support you along your academic journey, we also provide a full array of student services, including tutoring, career counseling, financial aid and job placement assistance as well as child day care at the Youngwood campus.

As a Westmoreland student, you can participate in intercollegiate and intramural sports, student clubs and organizations, and musical and cultural events on campus. You also have the opportunity to challenge yourself through our honors programs and research projects and assist with community service projects. In short, you can have a great collegiate experience at Westmoreland. 

Thank you for considering Westmoreland. I wish you much success as you take advantage of all that we have to offer you.
