Application Process
Visit the Wallace Community College Online Application page to apply.

Registration
Students are responsible for ensuring that the courses selected will fulfill degree requirements. Before registering, students should read relevant sections of the catalog and discuss the course choices with an academic advisor. Failure to do so can result in taking courses that will not fulfill degree requirements. Students who enroll in a course without completing course prerequisites may be withdrawn from the course by the College and may not qualify for a refund of tuition. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all course prerequisites are completed. Students must have successfully completed “ELearning Training” before enrolling in any online course.

Wallace Community College offers 2 methods of registration:
A. Web Registration through MyWcc – this requires approval of your advisor.
B. On-Site Registration

To access specific information concerning instructions, dates, and times, please visit the Wallace Community College website at www.wallace.edu

Grades and Related Marks
Students may access their grades online. To access final grades please visit the Wallace Community College website at www.wallace.edu and go to MyWcc. Login is student number and the default password is the 6 digit birthday (mmddyy). Access to grades throughout the semester is done through the blackboard courses and clicking on My Grades.

Withdrawal Policy
Students who wish to withdraw from a course or totally withdraw from school must officially withdraw on or before the date designated as the last day to withdraw for the semester. The date can be found in the Calendar of Events or in the Semester Schedule.
There will be NO withdrawals after this date. The student will receive a grade of “W” regardless of the student’s average at the time of the withdrawal; the grade of “W” will be recorded on the student’s permanent record. Students who remain in the course after the last day to withdraw will receive the grade earned for the course.

Counseling Services

Students are encouraged to consult their assigned counselor or the Counseling Services available.

The Statewide Articulation Reporting System, also known as STARS, is a computerized articulation and transfer planning system designed to inform students who attend Alabama community colleges about degree requirements, course equivalents, and other transfer information pertaining to specific majors at each state funded four-year institution. Students who are interested in receiving STARS information should make an appointment in the Counseling Center or visit the STARS web site at http://stars.troy.edu

Students enrolled in applied science programs are advised that some courses will not transfer to four-year colleges. Students are encouraged to consult counselors and faculty advisors to select the most appropriate programs of study available.

Vocational and occupational information and current catalogs from other educational institutions are available in the Counseling Center.

The counseling staff is available to assist students in making relevant career decisions. Students are encouraged to meet with counselors early in their programs so that values, interests, and career information may be discussed.
