Policies and Procedures

E0200 Admission

In compliance with our mission to provide relevant, high quality education that changes lives of students and grows our communities, it is the policy of Western Technical College to provide access to post-secondary education to all who are eligible in accordance with statutory requirements, existing policies of the Wisconsin Technical College System, and licensing and accrediting organizations.

An application for admission and application fee are required for all applicants pursuing enrollment in academic credit courses and to be admitted to the College. The College reserves the right to waive the application fee under certain circumstances.  

Individuals seeking a certificate, diploma, or degree must also submit their high school transcripts unless waived by the College.  Once admitted to the College, new program applicants generally need to take a placement test in order to determine which classes they will need to take.  For some individuals, pre-requisite credit and/or noncredit coursework in science, reading, mathematics, and English may be needed prior to, or in conjunction with, enrolling in certain courses. 

Students who leave the College for three (3) or more consecutive terms must file a new application and comply with all requirements in effect at that time.  Meeting with an enrollment advisor is recommended in order to develop a new academic plan. 

Western Technical College does not discriminate against, any employee or applicant for employment, student or prospective student, based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, creed, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, age, disability, marital status, veteran status or military service, genetic information, pregnancy, off-campus use/nonuse of lawful products, arrest or conviction record, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law.
