The following information is for those students who are currently enrolled at WCU through the ADP:
Advising for class scheduling takes place in late September and early October for the spring semester; and in late February through March for the fall semester. Your log-in page on myWCU will give you the date(s) that you are able to schedule classes through myWCU. Be sure to make an appointment with your advisor two (2) to three (3) weeks prior to that date so that you can be given "access" to the system. SEARCH THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOGUE for course content information and major course requirements. Search myWCU for the current course schedule for classes that you are interested in taking. Note them and bring them to your advising session.
Make sure that you are familiar with all Important Dates, such as: the end of the add/drop period; the course withdrawal period (beginning and end); last day for refunds, etc.
Those interested in Taking Courses Off Campus should visit myWCU; log in; click on "current students;" click on Registrar's Office; click on "transfer information;" then click on "course equivalencies." You will then see a screen that will direct you to a page with local community and other colleges where courses might be equivalent to transfer to WCU. Find the college you are interested in attending. Click on the link and you will then see on the left hand side the target school's course offerings and on the right hand side the WCU equivalent. Scroll through the course listings in either column to find the course you are interested in taking and see if it has a match. If so, the course is equivalent and you may take it for credit. Keep in mind that courses taken off campus will transfer only credit earned and not the grade achieved in the course.
Priority Scheduling occurs two weeks prior to regular scheduling and is arranged for incoming first-year ADP students, NCAA athletes, OSSD students, and those in the Honors Program.
Tutoring is mandatory for all developmental courses (ENG Q20, WRT 120; MAT Q01, MAT Q00; SPK 208), and available for several college level courses through the Learning Assistance and Resource Center.
