Enroll at Waubonsee and get started on your educational goals

Waubonsee’s open enrollment policy means that all students are welcome: for most programs, there’s no competition between students for placement, and there aren’t limits to the number of students who can be accepted.

You don’t need to be a full-time student, either; most of our students have jobs and lives that coexist with their class schedule.

If you want to further your education and develop your skills, Waubonsee can help you do it!

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.

Credit - New Student

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

Credit - Transfer-In

Credit - Returning

If you have previously taken a similar course at Waubonsee and have your X-number and password, you can register for classes right away. 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.
