Getting Started

Carbon County Higher Education Center (CCHEC) is the Rawlins Outreach Campus for Western Wyoming Community College (WWCC) in Rock Springs. WWCC offers 2-year degrees and certificates via distance.

There are many on-site courses in Rawlins and online courses available to choose from, whether you are just taking a class or two to explore your interests, taking courses to transfer to another school, or working towards completing a degree through WWCC.


Full- Time (12+ credits) Students & Degree Seeking Students

1. All students planning to attend full-time or seeking to complete a degree, an online application must be completed.

2. Complete the Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. Students must complete the FAFSA each year that they attend school in order to qualify for and receive Federal financial aid. Students paying for courses on their own can skip this step.

3. Complete the McCann & ALEKS placement tests for appropriate placement in English, Math, and Science courses. Placement tests are free of charge for WWCC students and can be scheduled with the CCHEC Test Center by calling 307-328-9274 or emailing Jessica Mayorga.

4. Meet with an advisor to register for classes each semester. Jennifer Moore is the Student Services Coordinator at CCHEC and advises all students except for nursing and pre-nursing students. Jenny Daniel is the advisor for all nursing and pre-nursing students. Both can be reached at 307-328-9274.


Part-Time (11 or fewer credits per semester) students & Non-Degree Seeking students

Part-Time and non-degree seeking students, should either reach out to CCHEC Student Services Coordinator, Jennifer Moore, to register for courses or fill out the online WWCC part-time registration form.
