The Registrar’s Office at Washington County Community College is located in student services and is responsible for student registration, academic record maintenance and enforcement of academic policies. The Registrar’s office is also responsible for Institutional Research and the reporting of enrollment information.
In order to comply with the Family Rights and Privacy Act all requests for transcripts must be made in writing to the Registrar’s Office or by using the transcript request form. Requests may be mailed or faxed to 454-1018. There is a $10.00 charge for on demand transcript requests. All financial obligations must be met with the college before a transcript may be released.
Every WCCC student enrolled in a degree program is assigned an academic advisor who assists in course selection and offers general information concerning the students academic life. Each semester, during a designated pre-registration period, students are required to meet with their advisors and register for the next semester. Students are encouraged to see their advisor as often as necessary to make certain they are taking courses that are appropriate to their academic and career plans. The name of the academic advisor is printed at the top of the student’s schedule every semester. Students are responsible for their own academic progress. Descriptions of specific courses are in this catalog; additional copies may be obtained in the Student Services Office.
Add/Drop Policies and Procedures for Catalog Courses
Students should consult with their Academic Advisors before making any changes in their schedule of courses. Also, students should realize that dropping a course may have an adverse effect on financial aid (veterans, social security, grants and scholarships, etc.). The Financial Aid Director should be consulted before a course is dropped. Students may add or drop subjects only during the first two weeks of each semester. If a course is dropped and another is added, there will be no financial penalty. After the add/drop period, until mid-semester, students may drop (but may not add) a subject without academic penalty and receive a withdrew passing (WP) or withdrew failing (WF) notation. That notation will appear on an individual’s permanent transcript, but will not be included in the accumulative grade point average. Students dropping any subject after mid-semester will have a grade of "F" recorded and included in the grade point average. The Add/Drop form may be obtained from the Registrar’s Office. The completed form requires the signature of the student’s advisor and appropriate faculty. The form must be returned to the Registrar’s Office.
