How do I know if you have received my admissions documents?

Log onto your campus connect account (through myWC) to view your dashboard. Received items appear in green, and items still required are red.  It may take two full business days for us to pro-
cess your documents. If you have a transcript hold after turning in a transcript it is likely we are waiting for the transcript which has your grades for the current semester from the school where you attend at this time.

How do I know if I am able to register yet?

First time students at Weatherford College are required to visit with an advisor before enrolling for classes. No appointment is necessary. First time students also must register for a “New Student Success Seminar” after which they may register for classes.  

How do I register for a New Student Success Seminar?

Log into your myWC account. Select the “Future Coyotes” tab. Registration information is located on the right side of the screen under the heading “After Applying.”

How do I check my financial Aid?

Log into your myWC account, select the Campus Connect tab. After acknowledging the message on the screen, scroll down to your financial aid information on the right side of the page.

Can you tell me my username and password?

Due to privacy laws, we cannot share this information over the phone. You will need to come to the Student Services office and provide a photo ID before we can release this information.

I am only taking online classes. Will I need to come to campus for class?

Yes. All online classes require students to come to campus at least two times each semester to complete an assignment. This is typically the mid-term and final exams. If you do not live within
an easy driving distance from the college, arrangements may be made for you to complete these assignments at a remote location. You will need to email your instructor for acceptable testing locations and permission to complete assessments at another location.

When is my tuition due?

That depends on when you register. If you enroll early for the Fall or Spring semesters, you may have a deferment period before you have to pay tuition. If you enroll in a mini-semester or summer semester, tuition is due at the time of enrollment. Tuition due dates are posted on Campus Con-
nect (part of your student information system) and will be printed on your statement after you enroll. Pay close attention to these deadlines.

I was dropped for non-payment, now what do I do?

Once you enroll in classes, you need to check to see when your tuition is due. If tuition is not paid by the due date, you will be dropped for non-payment. You can re-enroll in classes, however, you will be charged a $50 reinstatement fee.

I had a 504 plan or an IEP in high school, can I get this in college?

It is possible that you will qualify for accommodations in your college classes. You will need to visit the Office of Disabilities on the main campus. Speak with Dawn Kahlden, dkahlden@wc.edu, for more information.

nically. Go to www.wc.edu/campus-administration/registrars-office/ordering-wc-transcripts, and select the Credential Solutions icon. Follow the simple directions to place your transcript order.
