Whatcom provides placement testing in local high schools every spring. This allows students to take the test in a familiar environment on their high school campus. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a placement test for your graduating seniors interested in attending Whatcom this Fall.
If you have a group of students that are interested in checking out Whatcom, schedule a group visit through the Outreach Office. The structure of the visit will vary by group depending on needs and program interest. The traditional structure of the visit includes a campus tour led by a Student Ambassador, an informational overview of our degree programs and the enrollment process, and specific program information upon request. Please email email@example.com to schedule a group visit for up to 50 students.
Whatcom does not host a College Fair on our campus, but we would love to attend yours! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to invite us to your fairs and other events.
