An open-access institution of higher education, the college serves traditional and nontraditional curriculum students who have a wide variety of educational goals, from personal enrichment to career development to university transfer. To help students meet their goals, WGTC offers associate degrees, diplomas and technical certificates.

The curriculum includes programs in health sciences, trade and technology, business, and public service. WGTC students draw on knowledge from a broad range of disciplines to develop the communication and critical thinking skills that are fundamental to lifelong learning.

WGTC further promotes adult education and economic development through GED classes, ESL classes, continuing education courses, and corporate training for business and industry.

WGTC is committed to being accessible and responsive to community needs. To foster student success, WGTC provides quality education on many levels and comprehensive student support services. In addition to traditional instruction, WGTC’s flexible course offerings and alternative delivery methods, including online instruction, enable more members of the community to pursue higher education.
