Current Juniors in RS-(class of 2021)  I  have emailed your RSEVF for fall quarter to you.  Please check your WCC email and account for updates on fall registration from the college.

New students to RS- please see the Running Start website of WCC or BTC to find out the steps you need you to take. Be sure to read ALL of the information they post and watch the videos if they provide them. These will answer your questions and walk you through the steps you need to take.

I am on summer break beginning 2:30pm June 18th. The colleges know I am gone and that  we will take care of the RSEVF upon my return. You can still register for classes without it. Please do not ask your counselor, or our admin.  It is not an emergency. Thank-you!

Yes, Fall Quarter is online
Fall classes are going to be online for the entire duration of the quarter, September to December.
When you are looking at the schedule,<https://mywcc.whatcom.edu/ScheduleSearch/ScheduleSearch.aspx> note the “section”
· “WM#” = Web Meet, means class is online, but requires virtual classroom video meetings at scheduled times
· “OL#” = Online, means the class is completely online, and no meetings are required
· “HY#” = Hybrid, means the class is online, but requires you to come to campus periodically
Just enrolled in classes, but the cost seems too high or too low?
Tuition is always incorrect when you first sign up for classes. I will email you when it is time to pay!
What is fee-based? Tuition based?
This distinction does not affect Running Start students. You should ignore this column when choosing classes.
Did you request to withdraw or switch to S/U Grading, but it hasn’t happened yet?
As long as you made your request before midnight on June 12, we will go back and remove the class, or switch to S/U grading.
