Academic Advising

Create a road map to success

Choosing a program of study and the right courses to meet your educational goals can be challenging.  After you have explored our academic programs, you can reach out to an academic advisor for help selecting the courses you need to earn your degree.

All new students, including transfer and dual enrollment students, are REQUIRED to complete an online orientation designed to highlight important aspects that will ensure a positive academic experience here at WSCC. First time in college students, as well as former Dual Enrolled students, will also be required to attend a New Student Registration (NSR) session. The NSR will cover:


  • Using your program of study to identify what courses you need.

  • View the Class Schedule to see what is being offered

  • Learn more about the full range of academic advising services.

  • Read some tips to help you prepare for advising.

  • Be aware of the Academic Calendar and important dates related to registration


Advisors are available to assist you with registering for classes if you have questions about choosing classes. You need to Apply for Admission to obtain your user name and password before you can register.
