Apply online at OpenCCC

Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to apply.

Once you have submitted your application, an email will be sent to you with further instructions within one business day. A WebAdvisor account and student ID number will be assigned to you. This email will include a link to retrieve your student ID from WebAdvisor.

Before taking the online orientation, you will need to look up your WebAdvisor User ID. Your WebAdvisor User ID is the first initial of your last name (capitalized) followed by your 7 digit student ID number (i.e. L0123456). If you do not know your 7 digit student ID number, you can retrieve your WebAdvisor User ID here by clicking on the “Look it up here” link under “What is MyCampus Key Login?”  Note: If you did not provide a social security number in your OpenCCC application, you will need to visit the Admissions & Records office to receive your student ID number.

Once you have your WebAdvisor User ID, access the online orientation here, and enter your WebAdvisor User ID and password. If this is your first time logging into your WebAdvisor account, see our help site for login information.

Take an assessment test if you plan to register for an English or math class. An assessment of math, English, or English as a Second Language (ESL) skills is required in order to ensure students enroll in the correct classes. Complete your assessment test prior to your scheduled counseling session so your scores will be available for a counselor to evaluate.

Testing is by appointment only. You can schedule an appointment to take an assessment test either by visiting or calling Admissions and Records (530) 661-5720 (in Building 700).

Additional assessment information and practice tests are available here.

Exceptions: If you have taken the placement exam at WCC in the last 2 years, or have completed an English, math, or reading course at WCC, you are not required to retest. If you have taken a math or English class at another college, you may show your transcripts in place of taking an assessment test. Additionally, students may choose to use test scores from an assessment exam taken within 2 years at another California community college. These test scores can be evaluated by submitting the Student Placement Survey along with the raw test scores to Admissions & Records (Building 700). Test score evaluations may take 24-48 hours to process, depending on peak periods, and students are encouraged to submit this form ahead of time, so scores can be processed and available in time for their scheduled counseling appointment.

Once you have taken your assessment test, you are required to meet with a counselor during an individual appointment or group counseling session.

All NEW students are required to attend a group counseling session. You are considered a new student if you have not previously attended Woodland Community College (except during high school) or any other college. To schedule your group counseling session, call Counseling at (530) 661-5703.

All RETURNING students who have previously attended WCC are required to attend an individual counseling appointment. To schedule an appointment, call Counseling at (530) 661-5703.

All TRANSFER students are required to attend an individual counseling appointment. Please bring any outside transcripts and test scores (see “Exceptions” in Step 3 above) with you to your appointment. To schedule an appointment, call Counseling at (530) 661-5703.

With the assistance of a counselor, you will select courses to enroll in during your first semester at WCC. Counselors will make recommendations and develop an educational plan that fits your educational goals and assessment scores. Be sure to attend your counseling appointment in order to be cleared for registration!

Exceptions: 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.

  1. Have completed an associate or higher degree (specify college, degree, month/year awarded and include copy of degree or transcripts)
  2. Will be enrolling in performance classes only (e.g. music, drama, physical education activity classes)
  3. Currently enrolled at a four-year college or university (transcripts required)
  4. Enrolling in fewer than six units
  5. Not planning to earn a degree or certificate
  6. Enrolling in job-skill upgrade, self-improvement, or general interest courses
  7. Enrolling in classes for which you have previous training

In order to be granted exemption, you will need to complete and submit a Matriculation Form to Admissions & Records either in person (Building 700) or send a request via email to (for email requests: indicate the corresponding numbers of the two or more exemption criteria that apply to you, along with your Student ID number, and 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 eligible to register!
However, registration is set according to a student’s priority date and new 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.

Students may register in person by visiting Admissions & Records (Building 700)  OR
