Submit Official High School and/or College Transcripts

This includes final high school transcripts or GED Certification and scores. Official transcripts must be received from all colleges/universities attended. College level courses taken at institutions in which a grade of “C” or better was earned may be accepted in transfer.

Please see the Transcripts section on the WCC Admissions main page for our Transcript Request Forms.

Schedule and Take Placement Tests (if necessary)

Placement tests for math, reading, writing, and computer skills are used to place students in appropriate level classes. You are encouraged to utilize test review materials. To schedule testing, please call the Counseling Services Office at 919-739-6732. If you need to request accommodations, please call the Disability Services Counselor at 919-739-6729.

Meet with Counselor for Acceptance to the College

Students completing the placement test will meet with a counselor immediately after testing to review the results. The counselor will also officially accept you into your program of study and assign your academic advisor. If you did not take a placement test, you are required to schedule a time to meet with a counselor for acceptance into the college. This official acceptance makes you eligible to register at the next registration period.
