Our college programs are some of Missouri’s best-kept secrets.

Civilian College Student


Only a fraction of Wentworth’s students participate in military training. We’ve been granting college degrees to local commuting students who live within 60 miles of Lexington or any additional Missouri campus sites (Cameron and Lamar) since 1923. You’ll get personalized instruction from top-notch faculty in our associate’s degree programs, while building strong workforce skills and earning half the credits you need for a bachelor’s degree.
