Westchester Community College has an open admissions policy for students who have graduated from high school with a Regents or local diploma, and for those with a GED. Students who did not receive a high school diploma are not guaranteed admission to the college. These students should contact the Director of Admissions at 914-606-6735 for further information.

It is the student’s responsibility to be sure that all documentation is sent to our office. All documentation supporting the need for accommodation must be on file in our office prior to your testing date. Testing accommodations are not available at other testing sessions or off-campus locations.
Contact our office, Disability.Services@sunywcc.edu, as early as possible your documentation supports further accommodations other than extended time and a reduced distraction location; such as a reader, scribe, or sign language interpreter.
|Keep In Mind:||Due to confidentiality laws, we cannot provide initial contact prompting you to sign up for accommodations with our office. It is your responsibility to self-disclose and sign up for testing accommodations through our office.
Sign up for testing accommodations the 1st week of every semester for referrals to faculty (Green Sheets). Services are not automatic.
A student must self-disclose to Disabilities Services & professors and self-advocate.
Your first semester is NOT the time to go it alone without your accommodations. Come early and often to increase your academic success.
