Admissions & Records
The Admissions & Records Office at Wayne Community College provides services that include assisting with admission to the college, registering students for classes and processing schedule changes, determining residency for tuition purposes, transcript requests and much more.
Cooperative Education (Co-op) is designed to give students enrolled in many curriculum programs within the College a chance to work in a job while completing their degrees. This combination of classroom instruction with practical/related Co-op work experience provides numerous benefits to participating students. Academic credit is given for the learning gained during the Co-op work period.
Counselors are available to assist students with academic and personal concerns and to facilitate educational, career and future planning. Occupational information, college transfer counseling, counseling for students with unique educational needs, and career/personal assessment and placement testing are services provided.
The student financial aid program at WCC is designed to assist deserving students in meeting the costs of attending college. The program consists of two major types of aid: grants and student employment. An eligible student may receive one or more of these types of financial aid.
The Foundation of Wayne Community College awards a variety of scholarships. More than 65 percent of WCC students receive scholarships or financial assistance.
Student activities at WCC include sports and recreational programs designed to encourage active, healthy lifestyles and enhance a sense of community. Facilities include a weight and exercise room, tennis courts, softball field and walking course.
WCC also offers a wide range of student organizations for entertainment, friendship, leadership, and service to the College and community. The College also is home to two honor society chapters that recognize students’ academic accomplishments.
And in case you’re insterested in leadership, the SGA may be the place for you. The Student Government Association acts as a liaison between the student body and the administration of the College. All students who pay activity fees are members of the Student Government Association. WCC encourages students to attend the association’s meetings and participate in the decision-making process.
