IT’S NOT TOO LATE!

Open Registration for spring semester at WPCC closed last Friday, but you still have a chance to register for classes this spring. Last Chance Registration is Wednesday, January 8th. for everyone.

If you are a new student, you need to get started TODAY with your application to WPCC, determining your residency status, and filing the FAFSA (for financial aid). You need to get all this done before you can register for classes, so starting now is very important as it takes time to complete these steps!

Continuing and returning students who are in good academic standing can register for classes on January 8.

If you have any questions about Spring, 2020 at WPCC, stop by the website below for answers to common questions or give us a call at 828.448.6046 during business hours.

We want to see you at WPCC this spring! Let's get started!
