Special Notes About Course Sections

  • If you register for a hybrid course, you run the risk of being dropped from the course if the mandatory on-campus meetings conflict with other courses on the schedule
  • Some traditional daytime and evening courses may require supplemental work to be completed online
  • Refer to your registration statement or look up the class in the course schedule above for the locations where classes meet.



Some courses are listed with certain courses that you have to take before you can enroll in them (pre-requisites) or courses that you are required to take at the same time (co-requisites). The WPCC Catalog contains course descriptions that list prerequisites and corequisites for courses. If you enroll in a course with a prerequisite that you have not met or a cosrequisite that you have not also enrolled in, that course will be deleted from your schedule.
