The academic services offered students at WACTC are a careful collaboration between regional schools, guidance departments, and teaching staffs. Consideration is given to each student's career and/or technical program and their future goals, whether they be immediate employment goals upon graduation, or furthering their post secondary education. We remain mindful of the fact that career goals can and will change. Every effort is made to retain flexibility in academic scheduling and provide appropriate companion courses for students. Many of the programs at WACTC have college credit articulation agreements in place. This enables incoming college freshmen, (WACTC Graduates) between three and fifteen undergraduate credits upon arrival to their college or university the following September. These agreements also allow our students to receive advanced placement in post-secondary institutions thereby saving the student a portion of tuition costs.Student schedules and course selections are completed on an individual basis by our guidance staff. WACTC is very aware of the importance of these selections and of the concerns that today's employers have placed on a well-rounded educational experience. We endorse the overall development of the individual and the preparedness of the students to become productive members of toady's society, team workers, problem solvers, and life long learners.
