Admissions and Registration
How do I start at WVC?
Start with filling out an application form. Once you have applied, you will need to make an appointment with the Testing Center to take COMPASS, the placement tool used by Wenatchee Valley College. After taking COMPASS, you will make an appointment for an advising and registration session with an educational planner.
What is the difference between an application form and a registration form?
Application forms are used for admission to WVC. You must have an application on file in order to register by Web. Registration forms are used to sign up for specific classes each quarter. You may apply online through the Student Kiosk.
Do you have an application fee?
Yes. There is a one time fee of $25 for processing your application to WVC. This fee does not apply to Running Start students.
Is there an application deadline?
Yes. The deadline is normally two calendar weeks before the start of each quarter. Refer to the Student Calendar for specific dates. Applications received after the deadline will be processed for the following academic quarter.
If I miss a quarter (except for summer), do I need to re-apply?
Yes, and you will keep your same faculty adviser.
Do I need to take COMPASS, the placement tool used by WVC?
Assessment is required for all full-time students or any students wanting to take a math or English class for the first time.
Do I need a high school degree to attend WVC?
You will be admitted to WVC if you have a high school diploma or its equivalent, or if your high school class has graduated. Otherwise, you may apply for special admission. Running Start students qualify under special admission. WVC offers classes to help students prepare for the GED (general educational development) examination, and the GED exams are given periodically on both WVC campuses.
