Why Wabash Valley College

Be a leader be a warrior


Every College has its selling point. Most will tell students about the small class sizes while having a student population of several thousand. One of the defining characteristics of where students choose to attend is finances. Unfortunately, students sometimes need to sacrifice the quality of education in order to preface affordability or ignore looming financial debt due to student loans so they can attend an institution with quality education and/or campus life. At WVC, students don’t have to make that choice. Most students at WVC receive some level of financial compensation in addition to what is already one of the most affordable tuition rates in the market. Additionally, our staff is ranked among the top 120 colleges in the nation. As current students will tell you, our educators and approach to education is second to none.


Our student to faculty ratio is 14:1

96% of graduates agree their WVC education helped with their education goals.

90% of graduates are satisfied with their preparation for employment. 

In the past few years alone, we have been recognized by Best Colleges, Intelligent, Aspen Institute, and more for our courses, programs, tuition, graduation and retention rates. 


With over 13 career and technical programs, 3 transfer degrees, and over a dozen certificate options, Wabash Valley College can help where ever you're headed!
