Registration Deadlines Approaching for Spring/Summer 2009 Semester
Some classes are already filling up for WCC’s Spring/Summer Semester, so students should register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
That’s the word from Larry Aeilts, WCC’s registrar. “The longer you wait, the more full sections you’re going to encounter,” he said.
More than 6,000 students had registered for Spring/Summer by early April. Aeilts said up to 8,000 students may sign up for credit classes, a major jump from the same semester last year. “A good portion of that is tied to the economy,” Aeilts said.
The Spring/Summer Semester begins May 8, and the registration deadline for classes that start then is May 6. WCC is also offering two shorter sessions that start later. The registration deadline for the second 10-week session that starts May 29 is May 27, and the deadline for the second 7.5-week session that starts June 17 is June 15. The semester ends Aug. 7.
Sections of some classes—especially in the sciences—are already full and have waitlists, Aeilts said. Students who want to take a class that’s full should get on its waitlist as soon as possible to increase their chances of getting a seat that opens up, Aeilts said. Students can join a waitlist for a class during the registration process. Before a semester begins, Aeilts said, WCC typically moves more than 1,000 students from waitlists into classes.
Registration for credit classes is done online. If you need access to a computer or help with registering, visit WCC’s Student Connection on the second floor of the Student Center building. If you have questions about registration, call the Student Connection at 734-973-3543.
Registration is also underway for Spring/Summer LifeLong Learning classes. The non-credit classes cover topics such as art, business, careers, computers, cooking, education, gardening, health and wellness, home improvement, languages, motorcycles, nursing, personal finance, photography, social work, and writing.
A schedule of LifeLong Learning classes is available online. You can register for LifeLong Learning classes online, by mail, or in person at the Student Connection.
