Dropping a class, hoping for a refund?

We’re at that point in the quarter where you need to make the decision about dropping a class if you want any of your tuition refunded. You can still get a 40% refund, but if you’re in a WAOL online class, you need to take action by tomorrow, October 10th. For all other classes, the deadline is next Tuesday, October 16th.

WAOL Online Classes Start Today

Online courses with a section code of “ONL” (also known as WAOL online courses) start today, a week ahead of other online and campus courses.  If you’re registered in one of these courses, go to the eLearning page of Whatcom’s web site and click the Angel Login button to get access to your “virtual classroom.”  To log in to Angel, you’ll use your student ID number as your username and the first five letters of your last name (all the letters, if your name has fewer than five) as your password.
If you have technical problems, contact the Student Help Desk at  For other questions, write to Leslie Clark at
Today is also the last day to register for any online class with the “ONL” section code.  If you register today, you’ll have access to the class tomorrow, after overnight communication between our registration system and the WAOL course system.
Keep an eye on the extra-early deadlines for dropping a WAOL course for a tuition refund.  For a 100% refund, the deadline is September 26th.  For a 40% refund, it’s October 8th.

Taking an online class this fall? Heads up!

Get off to a smooth start in your online class this fall.  Put a few of these dates on your calendar:

  • The first day of class.  Online courses with OL section codes (OL followed by a number) and hybrid courses with HY section codes all start on September 27th.  But watch out!  Online courses with ONL section codes start a week earlier, on the 20th.  Check your schedule to find out if you have one of these early-start courses.  (Tip: be sure you’re looking at the section code, not the code for the location of the course.)  Another difference is that the deadline to drop and get a 100% refund for an ONL section is September 26th, the day before other classes begin.
  • The day your “virtual classroom” opens.  You can log into your class a week ahead of the first day of class.  And you should!  That way you can read the syllabus, figure out how to navigate around the “classroom,” and fix any technical problems with your login ahead of time.  Go to the eLearning page of Whatcom’s web site and click the Angel Login button.
  • On-campus orientation sessions.  Join a small group for a demo of how online courses work, then give it a try yourself.  Here’s the schedule.  See you there! Continue reading
