College History

History

Westmoreland County Community College, founded in 1970, first offered evening classes at Jeannette High School in 1971. By the fall of 1972, WCCC took up a permanent residence in a former Westinghouse plant in Youngwood, PA establishing a permanent facility and expanding into day classes. In the four decades since, WCCC's original campus has expanded to four buildings and the college has opened additional centers in other areas: the Bushy Run Education Center in Export, Fayette County Education Center in Uniontown, Greene County Education Center in Waynesburg, Indiana County Community College Center in Indiana, Laurel Education Center in Latrobe, Mon Valley Education Center in Belle Vernon, New Kensington Education Center in New Kensington, and Public Safety Training Center in Smithton. Throughout all the growth, WCCC maintains the lowest tuition among all Pennsylvania colleges. WCCC currently offers 64 associate degree programs, 13 diploma options and 49 certificate programs to prepare students for careers or transfer to baccalaureate degree programs at a four-year institution. The college also offers Continuing Education courses for adults, displaced workers, non-traditional students and even college for kids.
