Students are assigned to an advisor based on your academic goals and what you’re studying. Find out who your advisor is.
We recommend you meet with your advisor at least once a quarter to ensure you’re staying on track to graduation. You’re welcome to meet more often if you like.
You can meet with an advisor by appointment or drop-in. Appointments ensure one-on-one time with your advisor, while drop-in is for quick questions. You should make an appointment to:
- Compare different degrees in detail
- Create a degree plan so you know how long it will take you to finish your degree
- Receive an unofficial review of transcripts from other colleges
- Learn about the university transfer process
- Preparing for next quarter class registration
Call 360-383-3080 or stop by the Advising & Career Services front desk to schedule an appointment.
Walk-in advising is for answers to quick questions or for a quick tutorial on the Starfish degree planner and registration tools.
Current students sign up for next quarter classes during a time period called registration. Each student is assigned a registration access time each quarter; this access time is the earliest you’re able to sign up for classes and is based on how many WCC credits you’ve completed. Each quarter you’ll be able to register for classes a little earlier than the quarter before. The registration access times are set about halfway through each quarter and you’ll be notified of this via your WCC email. Once you receive that message, you can check your registration access time on MYWCC. View upcoming registration period on the WCC Registration Calendar.
When you try to register for a full class you are given the option to be added to the waitlist. Check your waitlist.
Blueslips are used by instructors to allow students to enroll in a full class, enroll in classes with waitlists, override a prerequisite, or register late. Students must request a blueslip from an instructor. It expires three days after the instructor signs it. Contact Advising and Career Services to obtain a blueslip.
This could be due to fines, academic progress, or transfer credits haven’t been evaluated.
