HBCU Pathway

HBCU Pathway

The HBCU Pathway is designed to assist students in preparing to transition seamlessly from high school to an Historically Black College & University (HBCU) upon completion of their associate degree at WCC.

Our primary goal is to keep college tuition affordable for students and families while providing an opportunity that ensures a sense of belonging. Pairing WCC's low-cost tuition rates with an affordable HBCU tuition will help minimize the overall cost for students completing college. 

More than 20,000 students enroll at WCC annually to receive one of the best overall values in higher education. Whether you're interested in online or in-person courses, we have the educational resources and renowned faculty to provide everyone a high-quality, impactful education.
