Sep 01, 2020

Wenatchee Valley College has extended the new student tuition and registration deadline from Friday, Sept. 4 to Friday, Sept. 18. WVC leadership extended the deadline to accommodate students who may not have registered yet due to complications from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Running Start application deadline is still Wednesday, Sept. 9.

WVC is offering the majority of its classes remotely this fall. All lecture classes will be online, and a small number of approved hands-on classes will be able to meet in person following strict health and safety protocols.

“We want to be flexible. We understand that in addition to enrolling in classes, many potential students are also juggling childcare, homeschooling or work,” said WVC President Dr. Jim Richardson. “We are trying to provide as many resources as possible to help new students succeed, despite these unusual circumstances.”

WVC is currently offering a variety of resources for new students:

  • Online resources – find resources for online learning or contact information for key student resources at wvc.edu/Online.
  • STEPP – the Student Tuition Easy Payment Plan (STEPP) lets students pay tuition using a flexible payment schedule (wvc.edu/PaymentPlan).
  • New Student Orientation – from Sept. 8-11, students can meet classmates, learn about campus resources, financial aid and successful study habits (wvc.edu/Orientation).
  • Financial Aid – there is still time to complete the FAFSA and WASFA and complete the 2020-2021 WVC scholarship application (wvc.edu/FinancialAid).
  • Online readiness orientation – a free, self-guided orientation on how to use online learning tools and succeed in online classes (wvc.edu/Distance).
  • Virtual Assistance – get live help from staff in educational planning, financial aid, registration and admission, counseling, IT and more (wvc.edu/VA).
