Wor-Wic Community College, located in Salisbury, Maryland, was founded in 1975 and was originally known as the “college without walls”, before obtaining a permanent campus in 1995. The name of the school is based on the two counties it serves, specifically those of Worcester and Wicomico.
WWCC is in close proximity to Salisbury University. Accessibility and low cost make it ideal for education prior to transfer to that institution. Recent budgetary concerns have forced the school to cease adult education programs that eventually result in students earning a GED.
Wor-Wic Community College offers students a variety of program options. Academic programs allow students to complete the first two years of a four year education, followed by transfer to a four year institution in order to complete the final two years and earn a bachelor's degree.
Technical and vocational training programs provide skills and education in a given field or industry for student's who intend to pursue employment opportunities after completion of the program. Such programs result in a degree or certificate, and take up to two years to complete.
