General Admissions Information
Western Piedmont operates under an “open door” admission policy. All people, 18 years of age or older, or who are high school graduates, and who are able to profit from further formal education, will be served by the College. The college serves all students regardless of race, religion, association, sex, age, disability, or ethnic origin.
- All entering curriculum students must submit a properly completed application to the Office of Admissions. You can complete the application online, download a PDF copy and fill it out, or pick up a copy at WPCC Student Services in Hildebrand Hall. (Please note that the PDF copy is recommended for use by applicants who use screen readers with their computer.)
- Entering students should forward transcripts of high school and all college work to the Admissions Office. Students must authorize in writing the release of transcripts from high schools and colleges. Admission to all associate degree programs and some diploma and certificate programs requires high school or GED completion. (Only the English version of the GED will satisfy proof of high school graduation)
- All students seeking a degree, diploma, or certificate at Western Piedmont Community College will be required to submit test scores to determine the student’s placement into college-level courses.
- Permission to register may be denied if all admission requirements are not complete after the student’s initial registration.
