Students register for classes during the official registration period (see the current Academic Calendar). In the event that a class is closed, students must see the division dean to determine whether additional class slots are available. Usually, they may not enter new classes after the first ten days of a new semester. Any request for entry after that time must be approved by the Vice President of Instruction and Student Development.
All registration dates will be announced in local newspapers and on radio stations and will be posted on college bulletin boards and the WCC website.
In order to register for classes or to change programs after initial registration, students must follow the registration procedures established for the College. Failure to follow correct procedures could result in a failing grade or the withholding of academic credit.
Students will be allowed to pre-register each semester without having to pay tuition at the time of pre-registration. Students who pre-register must pay their tuition or make arrangements with the Financial Aid Office by a payment deadline. This date will be publicized at the time of pre-registration in the class schedule.
Students who do not make payment by the deadline will forfeit their class schedule reservations and will have to prepare new schedules during regular registration.
Change of Registration
In all cases, students should follow established procedures for making any change in their programs after registration. Failure to do so could place their college records in jeopardy. Financial aid students should check with the Financial Aid Office when any changes are made in their class schedules.
Withdrawal from a class – A student's withdrawal from a course without academic penalty must be made within the first nine weeks of a semester and the student will receive a grade of "W." After that time the student will receive a grade of "F," except in rare, documented circumstances. A copy of this documentation must be placed in the student’s academic file.
Deadlines for withdrawal are listed on the Academic Calendar.
NOTE: The withdrawal period for classes in non-standard terms, courses, and summer sessions which are not a standard semester in length begins on the first day of classes and concludes on the day that represents the completion of sixty percent (60%) of the non-standard term.
Addition and late registration for a course – The add and late registration period for classes in the fifteen-week session terminates at the close of the tenth calendar day of the academic semester. The first day of classes, as published in the semester schedule, shall be the first day of the add and late registration period.
The drop period for classes in the fifteen-week session terminates at the close of the fourteenth calendar day of the academic semester.
The add/drop period for classes in non-standard terms, courses, and summer sessions which are not a standard semester in length begins on the first day of classes and concludes on the day which represents the completion of fifteen percent (15%) of the non-standard term.
Deadlines for adding and dropping classes are listed on the Academic Calendar.
Withdrawal from the College – A student who wishes to withdraw from the College should contact a counselor for advice on the procedure. Failure to follow procedures could jeopardize the student's college record and his or her return to this or another college.
