Below is a step-by-step guide to becoming a student at Wenatchee Valley College. Check
the Academic Calendar for important dates and deadlines.
Jump to information about reduced tuition for people over 60 years of age.
You can apply online or submit an application to the admissions/registration office.
Once your application is processed, you will receive an acceptance letter with your
Student Identification (SID) number.
Complete your financial aid application (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Scholarships, grants, loans and work-study programs are available for qualified students.
Apply early to ensure your application is processed in time for the quarter you wish
to start (financial aid applications can take 6-8 weeks to process). For more information, visit the WVC Financial Aid web page or call (509) 682-6810.
Proper placement into math and English classes will help support your long-term academic
success. New students must take a placement test unless they can provide documentation
of college-level proficiency in math and/or English prior to registering for classes.
Test results are valid for three years. For more information, call (509) 682-6830.
Once you have completed your placement testing, we will help you make an appointment
for an advising and registration session. The educational planning team will help
you interpret your test scores and discuss your academic goals. They will teach you
how to register for classes and will activate your PIN allowing you to sign up for
classes. For more information, call (509) 682-6830.
After registration, your student schedule will show your tuition and fee charges.
Pay tuition and fees prior to the payment deadline and purchase textbooks at the bookstore.
Advising for your next quarter will be done by a faculty adviser assigned to you based on your stated program interest.
If you are unsure of who your adviser is, you can find out by printing out your class
schedule. Your current adviser will be listed at the top. You can also check with
educational planning and testing at (509) 682-6830.
Anyone over 60 years of age may register for most credit classes for a special tuition
rate of $5 per class after the fifth instructional day of the quarter, but before
the 10th day. Registration is on a space-available basis for a maximum of two classes
per quarter. Even with reduced tuition, students must still pay any additional fees
for the class. Courses and fees can be viewed at wvc.edu/courses.
Note: There will be no transcript record for classes taken on a space-available basis.
These classes do not qualify for transfer.
Additional important details:
- Seniors who would like the tuition discount must register over the counter.
- The class must have space in order for seniors to sign up for it.
- A class taken for reduced tuition must be audited
- If a person does not want the senior discount they can sign up on the first day full
