How to Register for Online Classes
You must meet some requirements to take online classes. Why are there requirements? Because we want you to succeed. We’re found that students who don’t meet the requirements frequently have trouble with online classes.
In order to register and take online classes at WCC, you must meet one of these two criteria:
- Completion of 8 or more credit hours with a cumulative GPA 2.0 or above; OR
- Successful completion of Ready for Online Learning - ROLL
Note: If you’re a United Association member, additional class and registration information is available on the UA University website.
