Wallace steps up with assistance and resources for spring semester

Wallace Community College is preparing to “step up” for the upcoming spring 2021 semester with on-campus opportunities to tour the Dothan and Sparks campuses and get set for spring classes. The College has several application and registration opportunities for new and returning students. It’s not too early to apply and register!

On-Campus Assistance for all Students:

To help new students apply and register in-person, the College is hosting a What’s Your Next Step Kickoff event on both campuses November 13, 14, and 16. Students will be able to tour and talk to advisors. They will leave campus as a registered student with course schedule in hand!

The Kickoff hours are Friday, November 13 (8 a.m. to noon); Saturday, November 14 (9:00 a.m. to noon); and Monday, November 16 (8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) For more information, email admissions@wallace.edu or go to www.wallace.edu/wcc_events/spring-registration-kickoff/. Kickoff locations: Wallace Campus – Grimsley Hall and Sparks Campus – A Building.

Wallace offers several opportunities for registration.

Online registration for current students with 30+ earned credit hours begins at 8:00 a.m., November 10. For all other students with zero+ earned credit hours, online registration opens at 8:00 a.m. on November 12.

Regular Registration Assistance for all Students:

January 7 (8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.) and January 8 (8:00 a.m. to noon) are the final opportunities to register on-campus for spring semester.


“Buy one get one” Career Technical courses

For students seeking Career Technical training for fast track careers, students can take advantage of the “buy one get one” BOGO offer this Spring. It is the College’s commitment to students during the uncertainty brought on by COVID-19.

To be eligible for BOGO, students must plan to graduate with either a degree or certificate spring or summer semester 2021. It is a great opportunity to train in a field that leads to quick employment. Students must have a high school diploma, GED, or have demonstrated the ability-to-benefit. They also must complete a FAFSA 2020-2021 (www.fafsa.gov), and complete the BOGO Career Technical application by December 11 (https://www.wallace.edu/financial-aid/career-technical-buy-one-get-one/).

Need to Borrow a Laptop?

Wallace realizes that not all students have a laptop to complete their coursework. To fill this need, students can check out a computer to use for a specified time. In addition, the College supplies internet hotspots in front of Grimsley Hall on the Wallace Campus, and in front of A Building on the Sparks Campus. To checkout a laptop, go to Technology Checkout for Students.  https://support.wallace.edu.

Need Help?
Wallace has a plethora of resources to help students get to where they need to go. Admissions, Bookstore, Counseling & Advising, Dual Enrollment, Financial Aid, Library, Recruiting, Student Support Services, Talent Search, Testing (Accuplacer), and Upward Bound help links are available at wallace.edu/campus-life-resources/book-a-reservation.

Wallace’s Next Step for Spring is to open the campus for on-campus and online classes.
