Walla Walla Community College offers courses in most academic areas. These courses meet requirements for associates’ degrees and will transfer to four-year institutions within guidelines established by those schools. The courses and degrees offered are designed to enable the student to make a successful transition to a four-year institution. Students who plan to transfer to a specific college or university should work with a transfer advisor both at the community college and at the four-year institution they plan to attend.
While the agreements with baccalaureate institutions assure the transfer of credit, the admission to a particular university program is not assured. Each institution has separate admission criteria which can be based on grades, prerequisite coursework, test scores, and other considerations.
Students who plan to transfer to a university should attend a college transfer workshop, work with a community college advisor, and make early contact with their intended transfer school.
Many universities have advisors who visit WWCC. Students are encouraged to visit with these representatives when they are on campus.
