Western Nevada College (WNC) is a public college serving northwest Nevada. It is accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and of Colleges and Universities. The main branch of the college is located in Carson City, Nevada, with other campuses in the cities of Fallon and Minden. There are also WNC instruction centers in Dayton, Fernley, Hawthorne, Lake Tahoe, Lovelock, Smith Valley, and Yerington, as well as degree programs in five correctional institutions. The college offers a number of different associate degrees,certificate programs, and a bachelors of technology degree.

Prior to July 2007, WNC was known as Western Nevada Community College. The name change was approved by the Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents in recognition of WNC's ability to grant niche four-year degrees.
