One of the numerous two-year community colleges available for prospective students in North Carolina, Wayne Community College provides the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree in a number of different disciplines. With a relatively small student body, students can count on an ideal student-to-teacher ratio that makes learning, as well as asking questions when assistance is needed, easy and comfortable. In addition to academic pursuits, the school also offers a number of different athletic programs, as well as other extracurricular activities.

Established in 1957, WCC has been one of the main providers of post-secondary education for residents of Goldsboro, North Carolina and the surrounding area for over 50 years. With the opportunity to enroll as an extension student and flexible class hours that extend beyond the traditional weekday schedule, attending while still at a job or with other obligations is considerably easier than at other North Carolina community colleges. The numerous night and weekend classes make earning an associate’s degree from WCC rather simple.

Students attending Wayne Community College can choose from associate degree transfer programs, where the objective is to begin one’s education and eventually transfer to a four-year college after completion of an AA, and an associate in general education degree, which can be completed in a variety of different subjects. Some of the most popular courses of study in these two areas include an associate in applied sciences in biotechnology, forest management technology, criminal justice technology, and school age education. Additionally, WCC offers extensive training in the fields of nursing and medical assisting, which are two areas that provide an incredibly high rate of immediate employment upon completing one’s program.

WCC also offers students the opportunity to earn certificates and diplomas in a number of different courses of study, including business administration, applied animal science, emergency preparedness technology, and a number of different vocational-oriented training programs that focus on being adept in the areas of welding technology and autobody structural repair.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Students interested in attending Wayne Community College must first submit an application, which includes both a completed form for application, a GED or high school diploma, and a complete high school transcript. For those students who have already earned college credit at another academic institution, it is highly recommended that in addition to those materials, an official college transcript is submitted. This way, if you have any credit that is transferrable, you might be able to earn hours at WCC already without attending the additional classes. Because WCC works on a traditional semester schedule, all of these materials should be submitted at least a semester before your intended start date, as to give proper time for processing.

Financial Aid

Many students attending Wayne Community College receive some sort of financial aid. The first step once acceptance is received is to complete the FAFSA form. For those students who might require a bit of assistance, the school’s financial aid office has well-trained counselors who can provide help with completing the FAFSA, as well as applying for other grants and finding scholarships that are appropriate. The best thing to do for those who need this type of assistance is to schedule an appointment as soon as the need for help becomes clear. The counselors at the financial aid office are experienced and can provide help quickly and efficiently, which is a huge benefit to deciding that WCC is the right school for you.

Secrets to getting the best scholarships and financial aid in North Carolina.


As a two-year community college, student life at Wayne Community College is a mix of traditional four-campus experiences and the accelerated pace of those who are more interested in learning a skill or quickly getting their associate’s work completed. With an extensive campus designed to accommodate the student body of over 4,000 students, facilities are both contemporary and easily accessible. Because the school is more focused on providing a rapid education, however, students will find slightly less in the way of on-campus organizations, and significantly more when it comes to job placement services and quiet buildings in which to study.

Student Enrollment Demographics


For those students who are interested in sports, WCC offers a number of different opportunities to get involved and get on a team. The WildCats currently boast both a men and women’s cross country team, as well as volleyball and basketball.
