Here’s why you need to do this! It’s almost time to register for Winter ’18 quarter. Check your registration access time by logging into MyWCC. Registration for currently enrolled students begins November 9th, November 20th for new/former students, and November 27th for anyone interested in attending. You can register anytime beyond your registration time, but it’s a good idea to do so as soon as possible as classes can fill up fast. Now is an excellent time to schedule an appointment with an advisor in Entry & Advising to discuss class selections, update your Starfish degree plan, or talk about your academic/career pathway. Advisors are standing by!
Heads up! There are no classes on Friday, October 13th. Campus services, including Entry & Advising, are open and on their normal Friday schedule. What will you do with your free Friday?

Your time at WCC will probably come with some big questions to answer including: What do I want to study? Do I want to transfer to a university? What kind of career is a good fit for me? If you’d like some help working through those questions we encourage you to attend our fall quarter Developing Your Future, career & academic workshop series! Come learn what it would be like to study a variety of disciplines including biology, engineering, business, and the social sciences. If you’re still deciding what you’d like to study, we have a session for that too! These interactive workshops last about 90 minutes and give you the opportunity to meet faculty, learn about university transfer options and related careers. After attending the workshop you’ll receive an email with a list of customized next steps to help keep you moving forward. Attend one, a few or all six. We’ll save a seat for you.

When are you graduating? It’s a question heard a lot around campus and an important one at that. The graduation application process is now done on-line through the Admissions and Registration website page. Be sure to apply the quarter prior to the quarter you plan to graduate. An easy way to remember this is to simply apply for graduation at the same time you register for classes. Apply early so that you can be sure that you are on track to complete all of your degree or certificate requirements before your final quarter begins. Not sure when you’re graduating? Make an appointment with an advisor in Entry and Advising for a degree or certificate check.
For those of you graduating this winter quarter, submit your graduation application by Friday, October 6th. Of course, if you miss the quarterly deadline, you can still apply. You just may not receive your evaluation in time to make any necessary changes to your final quarter schedule if necessary.
Congratulations to all the Fall and Winter quarter graduates!
Heads-up! The Fall quarter 40% refund deadline is near! You must withdraw from your class by Friday, October 6th in order to receive 40% of your tuition back. For WAOL online classes, you must withdraw by Tuesday, October 10th.
Call Entry & Advising at 360.383.3080 or stop by LDC 116 to schedule an appointment with an advisor, as withdrawing may impact your financial aid and your academic plan.
Some questions just can’t wait! If you need some academic and/or career advising outside of Entry & Advising’s normal business hours, you’ll find an advisor in the Heiner Center library from 12-4pm on Saturdays. Sign in at computer near the Circulation desk and then head on back to room 201E where an advisor will be more than happy to assist you with your advising needs. NOTE: There will be no Saturday advising on November 25th during the Thanksgiving holiday. We look forward to seeing you!
Monday, September 25 is the last day to receive a 100% refund if you withdraw from your class(es). If you are enrolled in a WAOL class, the refund deadline is Wednesday, September 27. You can withdraw online by clicking on the “I want to register for classes” link on the WCC homepage or in person at the registration window. Of course, if you have any questions or need some assistance, come speak with an advisor in Entry & Advising, LDC 116.
Beginning Friday, September 22nd, a blue slip is required for registration. This includes any schedule changes. Remember- blue slips can only be issued by an instructor and are good for three days. After that it becomes void and you will need to get a new one. Need more information about blue slips? Come talk to an advisor in Entry & Advising or check out the registration information page on the WCC website.
Monday July 11th marks the last chance to withdraw from classes without receiving a “W” grade on your transcript. This is also the 40% tuition deadline for summer quarter. If you decide to drop a class, you will receive 40% of your tuition back, and not receive a “W”on your record.
Make sure to speak to an advisor about how a change in credit load can impact your financial aid and academic standing. Call Entry & Advising at 360.383.3080 to schedule an appointment or to inquire about drop-in times!
