Your Van Wert Campus of Northwest State Community College is excited to announce the opening of registration for our Summer and Fall 2023 classes.  We have partnered with Van Wert Health to house classes in the hospital’s conference rooms while our Sycamore Street location undergoes renovation. Classes are scheduled to be held in an 8-week hybrid format (1.5 hours of face-to-face lecture with online assignments) on weeknights and Saturday mornings.

Our onsite class offerings allow you to enter several Northwest State career pathways – Business, Computer Systems, Industrial Tech, and Bachelor’s Bound (i.e. those looking to ultimately transfer to a 4-year university). Classes are available for all student groups, including traditional aged college students, non-traditional/part-time students, students looking to take summer classes and transfer credit back to their home university, workforce development and upskilling, and college credit plus/dual enrollment.
