Review all of the following student categories and click onto the student category that best describes you as a WCCCD student:

New Students / Transfer Students


Step 1:
You must complete an application for admission. There are three options available to you for applying for admission:

1) Complete an application for admission at the campus of your choice.
2) You may also download an admissions application from the WCCCD web site (www.wcccd.edu), complete it and submit it to your chosen campus.
3) You may access Web-Gate and apply for admissions online. 

Step 2:

If you are a transfer student, you must have all previous academic credentials (transcripts) forwarded to the District Records Office, 801 W. Fort Street, Detroit, MI 48226.  The Request for Transcript Evaluation form is available online and at each campus’ Admissions and Records Office. All requests must be submitted to the District Records Office at 801 W. Fort Street, Detroit, Michigan, 48226.  

Step 3:

When you receive your letter of admission, be sure to follow the instructions. Assessment testing is required for most new students and should be completed prior to registering for classes. The Assessment test can be taken at any of our five campus locations. No appointment is required. However, since it is approximately a two hour test, students must arrive at the campus two hours before the campus Testing Center closes.

Step 4:

After completing your application and assessment test, you must consult with an academic advisor to discuss your educational goals and your selection of classes. You will then be given access to a PIN which will allow you to register for classes online.

Step 5:

You are now ready to register for WCCCD classes. You have two options:
  • You may register for classes online from your home computer or from computers available to you in the Online Registration Center at any of the five campuses. Instructions to register online may be found on this web site.
  • You may register in person at any campus site.

Step 6:

All tuition and fees must be paid by the deadline date posted each semester (see the Schedule of Classes for these dates). The District offers a deferred payment plan and some students may qualify for financial aid. Payments are accepted by check, money order, Discover Card, Master Card, or Visa. Refunds will be available if you officially drop classes by the refund deadline.

Returning Students

A returning student is defined as one who has not attended WCCCD within the last two years. All students in this category must complete an application for admission and indicate that they are returning to WCCCD after a two or more year absence. Students seeking a degree in an occupational or career program must apply for re-admission to their program as well.

Step 1:

You must complete an application for admission and indicate that you are a returning student. There are three options available to you for re-applying for admission:

1) Complete the application for admission at the campus of your choice.
2) You may also download an admissions application from the WCCCD web site (www.wcccd.edu), complete it and submit it to your chosen campus.
3) You may access Web-Gate and apply for admissions online.  

Step 2:

If you have taken classes at another post-secondary institution, you must have all previous academic credentials (transcripts) forwarded to the District Records Office, 801 W. Fort Street, Detroit, MI 48226.  The Request for Transcript Evaluation form, available at any of the campuses or the District Records Office, must also be submitted to the District Records Office.

Step 3:

When you receive your letter of re-admission, be sure to follow the instructions. Assessment testing may or may not be required prior to re-entry. Students must check with an academic advisor regarding the need to take the assessment test.

Step 4:

After completing your application and assessment test, you must consult with an academic advisor to discuss your educational goals and your selection of classes. You will then be given access to your PIN which will allow you to register online for your classes.

Step 5:

You are now ready to register for WCCCD classes. You have two options:
  • You may register for classes online from your home computer or from computers available to you in the Online Registration Center at any of the five campuses.
  • You may register at any campus in person. It is not necessary to register at the campus where you will enroll in the classes.

Step 6:

All tuition and fees must be paid by the deadline date posted each semester (see the Schedule of Classes for these dates). The District offers a deferred payment plan and some students may qualify for financial aid. Payments are accepted by check, money order, Discover Card, Master Card, or Visa. Refunds will be available if you officially drop classes by the refund deadline.

Important note: All students readmitted to the college after missing four or more regular semesters will be responsible for the curricula and regulations published in the current catalog and other official publications which are in effect at the time of their re-admission

Veterans

Students who intend to apply for admission and register for classes using their veterans benefits should first visit the WCCCD Veterans Affairs Office located in the Eastern Campus 5901 Conner Detroit, MI 48213. The phone number is (313) 579-6924.

Veterans Affairs certifies enrollment of those veterans and dependents that are using their educational benefits. The staff in the Veterans Office serves as a liaison between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the students at Wayne County Community College District. The staff assists veterans with completing forms, explaining the various degree options available at WCCCD, and directing students to appropriate district personnel for advising. Veterans should schedule an appointment with a counselor or academic advisor for individual assistance.

Students are encouraged to visit the Veterans web page on this web site for more detailed information. The VA forms are available here in PDF file format, which requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view. Click here to access Veterans Website, www.va.gov.
After completing all necessary preliminary paperwork, students should follow the enrollment steps indicated above for new, transfer or returning students.

Dual/Concurrent Enrollment

Dual Concurrent Enrollment students are high school students wishing to earn college credit while they are still in high school. For students under 18 years of age, approval of a parent or guardian and high school principal or counselor is required on the "Dual / Concurrent Enrollment" form; this form must be completed each semester the student enrolls in the Dual or Concurrent Enrollment Program. The application is available at the Office of Admissions at each campus location or at the District Student Services Office.

Step 1:  Dual Concurrent Enrollment students are not eligible to apply for admission online nor register for classes online. Admissions applications are available at all five campuses and at the District Student Services Office. All Dual Enrollment and Concurrent Enrollment applications must be submitted to the District Student Services Office and approved by an administrator at the District Student Services Office. The application must be signed by the parent or guardian of the student as well as the high school principal. It is important to note that applications which do not have the parent/guardian’s signature and the high school principal’s signature will be considered incomplete and will not be processed.

Step 2:  All Dual /Concurrent Enrollment students must take the Assessment test.  The results of this test will determine what classes can be selected for enrollment.

Step 3:   WCCCD advisors at the District Student Services Office will review the application to determine that it is complete, review the test scores and advise the student of classes to select for the upcoming semester. It may be necessary for the advisor to consult with the high school counselor or principal prior to class selection.

Step 4:  After seeing the advisor, the student is ready to register for classes. Registration must occur in person at the District Student Services Office or in special circumstances after consultation with District Student Services at one of the campuses.

Special Note:  WCCCD recognizes the need to provide special support to high school students who are enrolled in college level classes. It is expected that both parental and high school support be accessible throughout the entire duration of the student’s time spent with WCCCD. All Dual/Concurrent Enrollment students are expected to adhere to the same policies and regulations as WCCCD students. Students are encouraged to review the WCCCD Student Handbook with their parents or guardians as well as with their high school counselor.

Guest Students

Guest students are those who are currently enrolled in another post-secondary institution and wish to enroll in WCCCD classes to have them transfer back to their home institution.

Step 1:  Guest students are strongly encouraged to consult first with the academic advisor at their home institution prior to planning for classes at another institution. An academic advisor will assure them that the intended class can be transferred back to the home institution. Only the academic advisor or the Registrar at the home institution can determine if the class will be transferred.

Step 2:  Students have two options to apply for classes as a Guest student at WCCCD:

  • Students may access Web Gate  to complete the online WCCCD admissions application. Once the application has been submitted, the student will see a letter which provides instructions for immediate online registration.    OR
  • Students may complete the Michigan Uniform Guest Application which can be found online  at the WCCCD web site, www.wcccd.edu.  The application must be signed by the appropriate administrator  at the home institution and sent  to the Admissions and Records Office at one of the five campuses of WCCCD.

Step 3:  Students who apply for guest admission online may register online immediately after the application has been submitted. Those who complete the Michigan Uniform Guest Application will be required to meet with a WCCCD advisor who must activate the student PIN to enable the student to register online.

Senior Citizen

Citizens who are residents of the Wayne County Community College District and 60 years of age or older may receive a WCCCD tuition-free waiver.

Senior citizen tuition waivers shall be granted on a seat-availability basis in regularly scheduled academic classes. Although community service fees shall be waived for the senior citizens, they are responsible for the cost of books and class supplies. Senior students are expected to adhere to the same academic standards, rules and regulations in place for other students. Proof of age and residency are required at the time of registration.

Next  Step – Determine if you are a new or returning student and follow the steps to enrollment for those student categories.  If you are currently enrolled as a student receiving the senior citizen waiver, it will not be necessary to complete another admissions application. Like all currently enrolled students, you may register for classes online.
