Apply to WCCC

Washington County Community College maintains a rolling admissions policy, allowing applicants to apply and be considered for acceptance throughout the year.

Because space is limited in some of our most popular programs, we encourage you to apply as early as possible.  Please see the process for admissions and enrollment below.

Step 1:
Apply! Complete the Application for Admission
Complete a no cost application ONLINE or Download Application here for Admission.


Step 2:
Submit Required Transcripts or Other Documentation
  • Submit official high school*/college transcripts from the institution issuing the transcript to the WCCC Office of Admissions, One College Drive, Calais, ME 04619 or check with issuing institution to see if they can send official electronic transcripts. Emailed and fax transcripts are not considered official.  *If you have an Associate or Bachelor’s Degree (with a degree conferral date listed on the official college transcript submitted to WCCC) you do not need to provide proof of high school graduation.  
  • If you are a GED/HiSET (high school equivalency) graduate, have your score report submitted directly to WCCC using Diploma Sender or call 1-855-694-4738 to request a score report.

The Criminal Justice, Criminal Justice Conservation Law, Early Childhood Education, Education, Human Services, Medical Assisting, Phlebotomy, and Substance Use and Recovery programs require completion of the Student Disclosure of Criminal Convictions, Pending Criminal Charges and Certain Disqualifications. Completion of this form does not automatically deny admission to the program. Prospective applicants will meet with the Dean of Enrollment Management and Students Services to review information. 

Because instruction is given in English, prospective students with a native language other than English are required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), administered by the Educational Testing Service, will be made part of the applicant’s file.

Step 3:
Wait for your Acceptance Packet
Our goal is to provide you with an admissions decision within one week.  If you have not heard from us within a week of completing your application or need assistance, please email our Admissions Office or call 1-800-210-6932 (in Maine only) or 207-454-1000.  
Step 4:
Complete Required Documents for Course Registration/Enrollment

Once you receive a Letter of Acceptance, proof of immunizations through the Immunization History Form is required for all students that will be registering for in-person courses.  The form must be completed by a medical professional and received in the enrollment services office prior to course registration.

An Admissions Deposit Form and $75.00 Deposit is also required for all students prior to course registration.
