The Office of Continuing Education, in cooperation with the college's academic divisions, offers a variety of extended campus undergraduate and graduate courses at many locations around northeast Nebraska, utilizing both standard and electronic delivery media (traditional face-to-face classrooms, satellite and fiberoptic-based classrooms, as well as Internet and CD-ROM based).
Extended Campus courses are organized within a framework responsive to the needs of the public. Evening, weekend, and bi-weekly schedules are typical for classes, depending on course content, demand, and pattern of instruction. Courses are also offered via the Internet, and through the use of CD's reducing or removing the commitment of a set time and place for instruction.
Transfer agreements are in place with area community colleges in Norfolk, Columbus, and Sioux City, therefore the majority of Continuing Education courses offered by WSC are at the upper division or graduate level primarily in the areas of Business and Education. A limited number of general education and electives are also available.
The Office of Continuing Education is committed to providing lifelong learning opportunities, to support non-traditional students and rural communities throughout the WSC service region, and to promoting and inspiring the academic growth, creativity, quality, and integrity of Wayne State College.
The purpose of the Office of Continuing Education at Wayne State College is to provide programs and services in a timely, practical, and accessible manner to meet the educational needs of the people in the WSC service region. Overall, the goals of the Office are to plan, promote, study, and evaluate, as well as coordinate and facilitate a variety of services: off-campus undergraduate and graduate courses as well as programs; experimental courses and pilot projects; workshops and all WSC distance education courses (telecourses and web-based classes.) It is also the purpose of this Office to collaborate with others throughout the WSC service region to create a positive image of the Office of Continuing Education and Wayne State College.
Fall, Spring, and Summer offerings are designed and scheduled in collaboration with the WSC academic departments (faculty and Department Chairs/Deans), and the Vice President of Academic Affairs who approves all offerings. In general, the Office of Continuing Education activities are designed to meet the educational needs of the people in the WSC service region with a focus on the following:
Courses and programs are delivered at major regional educational centers in South Sioux City and Norfolk.
