New Student Advising

Welcome to WCC! As a new student, your academic success starts with meeting your WCC Success Team. Your WCC Success Team is your designated "go-to" team that can assist you with any questions and help keep you on the right path, for the entirety of your academic career.

Now that you are officially a WCC student, you will want to meet with an Academic Advisor before you register for your classes. An Academic Advisor will help you select your classes and review your overall program plan. 

Please note: During peak periods, which are generally before the semester begins and when registration opens, we ask students to meet with an advisor using the Drop-In option.

Ways To Meet With Your Advisor 

Virtual Drop-In Advising

  • During our virtual drop-in advising you will be able to meet individually with an advisor who will guide you through your academic requirements. 
  • Drop-in advising is conducted in a Zoom video conference and it is highly recommended that you have a computer or tablet with a camera, microphone, and a reliable internet connection.
