Registration Starts Nov. 14 for Winter Semester 2013
Current WCC students will have just a one-day edge over new students during class registration for Winter Semester 2013.
Winter registration for current and readmitted students starts Wednesday, Nov. 14. Registration for new students starts one day later on Thursday, Nov. 15. Previously, there was a one-week gap between the beginning of registration for current and new students.
Winter Semester starts Jan. 14 and ends May 6.
Winter registration marks the second semester that WCC students will use a class schedule that WCC launched for Fall Semester 2012. It allows students to find classes using keywords such as a subject, class name, instructor name, class number, or CRN. Other tools let students find classes by subject, location, time of day, days of the week, and type of class (traditional, blended, or online).
Registration Times Are Staggered
Current and readmitted students have staggered registration start times on Nov. 14. The times are based on the overall number of credit hours earned, either at WCC or through accepted transfer hours, through Spring/Summer Semester 2012:
- 45 hours or more: 8:00am
- 30 hours or more: 11:00am
- 15 hours or more: 1:00pm
- Less than 15 hours: 3:00pm
You’re a current student if you took credit classes at WCC in any semester from Winter 2011 to Fall 2012. You’re a readmitted student if you took classes more than two years ago and have reactivated your file by completing the online application again.
Registration for new students starts at 9:00am on Nov. 15. New students must submit an online application and be admitted before they can register.
Online Tools Make Registration Easier
Students have several online tools to help them build their schedules through MyWCC, the system they use to register for classes:
- The WCC Schedule Planner lets students type in classes they want and block out times they’re unavailable, and then produces possible class schedules.
- The Program Requirements and Degree Audit allows students to see which classes they still must take to earn a degree.
- The Course Prerequisite Check lets students check prerequisites and, if they feel that they meet them, apply for a prerequisite override online.
Register Early for Best Class Selection
Students should register as early as possible to help ensure there are open seats in the classes they want.
WCC offers classes during the day, at night, on weekends, online, and in a blended format that combines online and classroom instruction. Classes are available at WCC’s main campus and at extension centers in Brighton, Dexter, Hartland, and Ypsilanti.
WCC Offers Classes at High Schools
WCC also will offer classes at five high schools in addition to existing extension sites at Brighton High School and Dexter High School. Offering classes at high schools is an expansion of WCC’s dual enrollment program, which lets high school students take College classes while they’re in school.
The five high schools where classes will be offered include:
- Chelsea High School
- Hartland High School
- Manchester High School
- Milan High School
- Whitmore Lake High School
In many cases, school districts will pay the tuition for their students who take WCC classes.
