WCC has rolled out a new admissions application that makes it easier than ever before to apply to the College.
If you need money for college, many scholarships are aimed at WCC students. There’s money available whether you’re a current WCC student or a high school student planning to attend the College.
College is a destination for most high school students today. Many local students take advantage of an option that helps them get a head start on their college degree: they enroll at WCC while still in high school. The College calls it dual enrollment.

Admit it: When you walked by that 600-pound bike in the parking lot, you felt a little jealous. Someone else had sat on top of its shiny chrome, with every cell in their body idling at the same RPM as its engine. Unlike you, in your boxy SUV or fuel-friendly compact, they felt the freedom of the road that you never could, encased in metal and fiberglass. If what's holding you back from a two-wheel experience is your skill at doing it safely, WCC has a class for you.
