Our staff is available to assist new and returning college students with your application and completing each of the important steps below:

 

STEP 1: LACCD Online Application

 An application is required if you are new to LACCD or have not enrolled in two consecutive semesters.

  • K-12 Students: Submit your Online LACCD application. After receiving your LACCD ID# via email, submit your Supplemental K-12 Form to admissions@wlac.edu. The Supplemental Form is required for every term.

 

  • Graduating High School Students: If you have taken WLAC courses within the past year, you must complete a High School Graduation Update Form and submit a copy of your high school diploma or transcripts to the Admissions Office.

 

STEP 2:  New Student Orientation

Log into your Student Information System Account and review your TO DO CHECKLIST. It presents important information for students and helps satisfy a requirement to earn Priority Registration.

STEP 3: Schedule a Counseling Appointment

Meet with a Counselor for enrollment recommendations, to clear prerequisites, and formalize your plans for a certificate, degree, and university transfer.  

 

STEP 4:  Register for Classes

Review the Schedule of Classes for available classes. Classes are offered in 5, 8, or 16 week sessions.

New WLAC students now qualify for placement into university-transfer level math and English courses without Assessment testing. Students have the option to enroll in 

  • English 101 (or lower) 
  • English Second Language 6 or 8 
  • Math 215 (Principles of Math), 227 (Statistics), 245 (College Algebra)

  • Under your To-Do Checklist, click on "More to-do list details) 
  • Click "English & Math Placement" and complete the five-question Web Form. Your new placement will appear within 1 business day.

  • Math 235 (Finite Mathematics),
