Whatcom Community College’s physical campus is closed beginning 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, 2020 for a minimum of two weeks to ensure alignment with Washington State Governor Jay Inslee’s statewide “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order. Online instruction and working remotely will continue. Students and employees should not come to campus during this time. Spring quarter instruction will still begin online on Wednesday, April 15.

It is important to emphasize that Whatcom Community College remains operational and dedicated to ensuring the academic mission continues through this challenging time. We have moved services and instruction online to the greatest extent possible to keep our community healthy. Remote services will differ for various service areas, departments, and resources. Visit this remote services directory to learn how you can easily access the WCC services you need without visiting campus.

GenCyber-logoGenCyber camps 2019

(updated Aug. 22, 2019)

Whatcom Community College offered three week-long, non-residential GenCyber day camps in 2019; two for middle school students (July 8-12 and July 15-19) and one for high school students (July 8-12).

Participants explored the high demand and rapidly growing field of cybersecurity. They learned through hands-on activities how cybersecurity professionals help protect information and information systems from unauthorized access, misuse, and destruction.

The GenCyber camps were offered at no cost to participants. Funding was provided jointly by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation through a GenCyber grant.

Cybercamps 2012-14

From 2012-14, Whatcom Community College offered an annual cybercamp for local high school students. The camps were funded through a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant the College received. Below is information about how other institutions can host their own cybersecurity camps. 

This site contains the materials used to create a high school cybersecurity camp. Currently we have posted the lab manual and one day competition materials. These materials were developed through funding from the National Science Foundation.
