Location Specific Course Offerings
Each year, thousands of students from other institutions visit Westchester Community College to take summer courses. Below, please see a list of Frequently Asked Questions specific to Visiting Summer Students at Westchester Community College.
I’m just visiting for the summer. Do I need to apply to the College?
Yes, all students – even those just visiting for the summer – must apply to the College by completing our online application at www.sunywcc.edu/apply. In response to the application question that asks your reason for requesting admission, choose the appropriate option to indicate that you are not seeking to earn a degree/certificate from Westchester Community College.
Do I need to submit proof of immunizations to the College Health Office?
Only if you are taking more than 5 credits over the summer and any portion of these credits are from in-person classes. Visiting students taking 5 credits or fewer as well as visiting students who are taking all online classes are not required to submit immunizations to the College Health Office. For more information about immunizations, please see www.sunywcc.edu/immunization
If I’m just visiting for the summer, do I need to submit my proof of high school graduation
No, proof of high school graduation is not required for visiting summer students.
If I’m just visiting for the summer, do I need to submit my college transcripts?
You do not need to submit your college transcripts in advance. If the course that you’d like to register for requires a prerequisite that you took at another institution, at the time of registration you’ll need to show an unofficial transcript that demonstrates that you successfully completed the prerequisite (see question below about registering for a course with a prerequisite).
How do I find out my MyWCC logon information so I can register for a class?
After you apply online, the Admissions Office will email you your logon information. To inquire about your logon information before you receive your email, please contact the College’s Welcome Center at least 48 hours after submitting your application at (914)606-5600.
Once I have my logon information and have submitted my immunization records (if required), how do I register for a class?
If the course(s) that you’d like to register for do not require prerequisites, you can register online on your MyWCC account or in-person at either the Registrar’s Office (Administration Building Room 107) or at one of the College’s hub Extension Sites.
How do I register for a course that requires a prerequisite that I completed at another college?
To register for a course that has a prerequisite, you must show proof of the completed prerequisite at the time of registration. This may be done either in-person or by email. Prerequisite courses need to be completed with a grade of C or better.
- To register in-person for a course requiring a prerequisite, please bring your unofficial college transcript showing the prerequisite (or a copy of the appropriate ACT/SAT score, as required) to the Registrar’s Office in the Administration Building Rm. 107.
- To register by email for a course requiring a prerequisite, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – your email must include your student ID as well as the name and 4-digit class number of the course(s) you’re requesting to be registered for. Attached to the email, please include a copy of your unofficial transcript (or a copy of the appropriate ACT/SAT score, as required) that shows the prerequisite.
If I’m just visiting for the summer, do I need to take the College placement test?
Only if you’re registering for an English, Math, or Reading course that requires the placement test and you have not otherwise met the prerequisite requirements for the course OR if you’re registering for another course that requires you to have a certain ‘readiness’ level in English or Math and you have not completed the prerequisite English or Math course. In these cases when the placement test is required, only the relevant portion (English, Math, or Reading) is required, not the whole test.
In order for my home college to approve the course that I’m thinking of taking over the summer, they require a course description or syllabus – where can I get this?
For a course description, please visit the College’s catalog at catalog.sunywcc.edu
If your home institution requires a syllabus, please contact the appropriate School at www.sunywcc.edu/contact (links and contact info. on left of page) to request a copy.
How can I find out what classes are offered online or at a certain extension site during the summer?
Click on the ‘Course Offerings’ link above, which will take you to the MyWCC’s Class Search page. To find online classes, set ‘Mode of Instruction’ to ‘Online’. To find courses at a certain extension site, set the ‘Location’ field to the desired site.
What is the maximum number of classes I can take during the summer?
Students can take a maximum of 2 classes during each of the summer sessions.
When is payment due? How can I pay?
It depends on what summer session you’re taking – click here for a chart of payment due dates for the different Summer sessions. Payment can be completed online on your MyWCC account; for other payment options, please see www.sunywcc.edu/bursar
Is there a payment plan for Summer?
No, there is no payment plan for Summer; courses must be paid in full by the due date for that session.
Is Financial Aid available to Visiting Students?
No, Financial Aid is only available to Westchester Community College students who are matriculated in a degree or certificate program. Visiting Students should check with their home institutions to see if any financial aid is available to them.
What if my permanent address is not in Westchester?
If your permanent address is in New York, but outside of Westchester County, in order to pay the resident tuition rate you’ll need to have a Certificate of Residence completed in your County of Residence and then submitted to the Bursar’s Office. For information about the Certificate of Residence, and to download the form and instructions, please see www.sunywcc.edu/bursar
If you live outside of New York, you can take summer courses with us, but you will pay the non-resident tuition rate – please click here for tuition rate information. Please also note that certain states have restrictions that prevent residents of their state from taking online courses with us – please click here for information.
How do I get my credits transferred back to my home institution?
After the course is finished, you can request an official transcript to be sent to your home institution – please see www.sunywcc.edu/transcripts for more information.
