A special credit student intends to only take a few classes at WCC and does not plan to pursue a degree, diploma, or certificate with the college. Students typically choose this option if they are planning to take a small number of classes to either transfer to another college at which they have already been enrolled for professional development or to fulfill a special interest.

Note: special credit students are not eligible for financial aid.
