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.
Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to Whatcom Community College. We are thrilled that you will be joining our Orca Family!
As a new student at Whatcom Community College you are bound to have questions. We designed the Wave Orientation around you, helping to uncover the answers to the questions you might have, and providing you with information about campus resources, programs, and services. By the time you leave orientation, you will have new tools to enhance your start at Whatcom.
Wave Orientation is an opportunity for you to learn how to navigate campus and introduce you to the Orca community. During the program, you will begin to build a network of resources that will help you to start your WCC journey on the right path.
While Orientation is an important step in becoming a student, there is a lot you can do in the meantime to prepare for your time at Whatcom. Check out the next step for a checklist to make sure you arrive ready to take on your first quarter!
