Weatherford College embraces a culture of excellence, fostering the success of all of its students and enriching the communities it serves through innovative, affordable, and accessible learning and cultural opportunities.
Established in 1869, Weatherford College can still lay claim as the oldest continuing community college west of the Mississippi River. Its service area consists of five counties – Parker, Palo Pinto, Hood, Jack and Wise.
WC provides programs that parallel the first two years of baccalaureate education, prepare students for vocational and professional degrees and provide valuable lifelong learning opportunities. The college also offers four bachelor's degrees: Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Medical and Health Services Management, Organizational Leadership, and Early Childhood Education and Teaching with a fifth degree in the works.
Through our partnerships with institutions such as Midwestern State and Tarleton State University, to name a few, students may also pursue bachelor, master and doctorate degrees. The College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and many other program-specific accrediting authorities.
