Get Enrolled, Registered and Ready for Class!

The process depends on the kind of student you want to be and kind of courses you want to take. There is no competitive application process, except for a few select programs.  And you’ll receive personal attention and guidance to help you along the way.

We’re dedicated to helping you achieve success because this is your future.


New Student
Earn college credit to transfer to a four-year university or prepare for a career

New Summer-Only
Current or future four-year college students “visiting” Waubonsee to earn credits that transfer back to their home schools

Transfer in academic credits previously earned at another college or school

If you have taken a credit course at Waubonsee in the past two years (six semesters), you can likely register for classes right away. If it has been longer than two years, please complete the Readmission Form first so that you can update your personal information and educational goals. Note that if you’ve taken only noncredit and/or high school courses previously and are ready to move into credit courses, you should follow the process for new credit students.
