You can finish. We can help!

Did you know your credits at Whatcom Community College don't expire? Your hard work in the past can pay off big in the future when you finish your degree. Take classes on campus, online, or a combination of the two. There are flexible options to take the courses you need to finish your degree.


You may be closer than you think

Recent changes to the Associate of Arts and Sciences transfer degree and class offerings provide more flexibility for completing your degree. Changes include:

  • Alternative, shorter pathways to college-level math 
  • Two subject areas instead of three required in the humanities, social sciences, and math/science distribution areas
  • 15 credits instead of 25 credits needed to meet WCC residency requirements

Former students are now finding that they are close to, or may have already met, the new graduation requirements. Other degree options, such as the flexible Associate of Liberal Studies degree, offer even more possibilities for completing your degree. Talk with an advisor to learn more: 360.383.3080.

If you are ready to re-apply now and you have been away from Whatcom for more than a year, get started here.
