Join a 6-week College Success Course!

New students are encouraged to enroll in Educational Planning (EDPL) 100: College Success during their first quarter.  EDPL 100 is a 2-credit course designed to help you get to know the College, meet other students, and learn key strategies for success in school. The class fosters connections with other students and focuses on topics such as time management, financial literacy, degree planning, and more. 

To best support you as you settle into college, EDPL 100 begins a few days before the rest of your classes, includes the Whatcom Wave orientation, and continues to meet through the first 6 weeks of the quarter.  The course is offered at a variety of days and times, including nights and Saturdays, to meet your scheduling needs.  Log into the MyWCC student portal, check WCC’s class schedule search tool online, or meet with an academic advisor for details, including specific dates and times for your class section.
