Click on each step below to learn how to get started:
After you have submitted your application, an email will be sent to you with further instructions within one business day. This email will include a link to retrieve your 7-digit Student ID number.
Need some help? Follow along with our step-by-step PDF guide on how to complete your application.
Once you have your Student ID Number, you must complete the WCC Online Orientation. Access it here.
You can look up your Student ID number and password and additional login information at YCCD Online Help.
Student ID: Your Student Username format will be the first letter of your last name (capitalized) followed by your 7-digit Student ID number. For example, W0123456.
Password: For first-time users, your default login password format will be:
First letter of your legal first name (uppercase) + First letter of your legal last name (lowercase) + Last 4 digits of your social security number (or last 4 digits of your Student ID number if you did not provide a SSN) + Birth month (2 digits, such as May = 05)
For example, John Doe with a SSN of 123-45-6789 born in January would be Jd678901.
Once you have taken your online orientation, meet with a counselor to develop a Student Educational Plan.
To schedule your counseling appointment, call Counseling at (530) 661-5703 or book it online through eSARS.
All NEW students are required to meet with a counselor. You are considered a new student if you have not previously attended Woodland Community College (except during high school) or any other college. Please have your high school transcripts ready to reference during your appointment in order to complete the Multiple Measures Assessment Program (MMAP) form.
All RETURNING students who have previously attended WCC are required to meet with a counselor.
All TRANSFER students are required to meet with a counselor. Please gather any outside transcripts prior to your appointment. If you do not have an unofficial transcript or have not taken an English or math at your previous college, you will need to meet with a counselor to complete the Multiple Measures Assessment Program (MMAP) form.
With the assistance of a counselor, you will select courses to enroll at WCC. Counselors will make recommendations and develop an educational plan that fits your academic goals. Be sure to attend your counseling appointment in order to be cleared for registration!
EXEMPTIONS: Some students may not need to meet with a counselor depending on their educational background or plans for study. If you meet 2 or more of the following criteria, you are not required to meet with a counselor.
- Have completed an associate or higher degree (specify college, degree, month/year awarded and include copy of degree or transcripts)
- Concurrently enrolled in high school
- Will be enrolling in performance classes only (e.g. music, drama, physical education activity classes)
- Currently enrolled at a four-year college or university (transcripts required)
- Enrolling in fewer than six units
- Not planning to earn a degree or certificate
- Enrolling in job-skill upgrade, self-improvement, or general interest courses
- Enrolling in classes for which you have previous training
In order to be granted exemption, you will need to complete and submit a request to Admissions & Records. Request must be sent via email to WCCadmissionsinfo@yccd.edu with the following information: 1) indicate the corresponding numbers of the two or more exemption criteria that apply to you, 2) your Student ID number, and 3) scanned copies of any required verification documents. Please make sure to include all necessary information and verification to avoid delay.
Once you have completed all the necessary steps, you are cleared for registration!
However, registration is set according to a student’s priority date and students can register only after their specified date. New students who are fully matriculated (completed all steps) will be given Day 6 priority. New students who have not completed all steps will not be eligible to register until doing so. Check your priority registration date.
How to Register
Register online through Self-Service. Students can access Self-Service, student email, Canvas, and other interfaces through our YCCD Single Sign-On Portal. Just go to login.yccd.edu to start, and click on the Self Service button:
- Once logged in to Self-Service, click on “Registration Checklist” link at the top of the page and follow the steps.
- How does waitlisting work?
- Remember, you have 10 Days to Pay. You will be dropped automatically from a class if you do not pay your fees within 10 days of registering.
- It is important to show up for the first day of class to avoid being dropped!
All students are encouraged, but not required, to apply for Financial Aid. You may complete your application before or after submitting your OpenCCC application and can find out more information by visiting the Financial Aid office (Building 700) or calling (530) 661-5725.
The FAFSA is also used to determine whether students are eligible for a California College Promise Grant (CCPG, formerly BOG Fee Waiver) which waives tuition costs.
Keep in mind:
- Even if you aren’t eligible to receive financial aid, you may still qualify for the fee waiver. Apply for enrollment fee waivers prior to registering.
- Understand the 10 Days to Pay Rule. You will be dropped automatically from a class if you do not pay your fees within 10 days of registering.
- There are different ways to pay for classes.
