1. Cost of Tuition
The cost for international students to study full-time at WWCC is much less than a 4-year college or university. Generally, the difference is about half the cost. Many students attend WWCC to save money so they have more financial resources available when they transfer to a 4-year college or university.

2. Transfer Program
Transfer programs give students the opportunity to earn credits that are fully transferable to a 4-year college or university. A student earns an Associate’s degree, which is generally equal to 50% of the required credits for a Bachelor’s degree. In most cases, students should be able to complete the 4-year degree in 2 additional years. WWCC has articulation agreements with several regional colleges and universities. Full accreditation at WWCC makes transfer easy for students. Transferability is one of the most important reasons why many American students choose to study at a community college.

3. Quality of Instruction
Generally, all instructors who teach in the transfer program must have earned a master’s degree in order to be employed at WWCC. Many instructors continue to study in their field of teaching and remain in the community college because they appreciate the learning environment and smaller class size. Over 13% of our full-time faculty have earned doctorate degrees.

4. Small Class Size
WWCC offers small class sizes for good interaction with, and individual attention from, instructors. Many classes have 20 students per class or less. Other services such as free tutoring, personal and career counseling, and academic advising are readily available for international students.

5. Open Door Admission
WWCC has an open door policy for general admissions. All students who complete the application process are accepted for admission. WWCC has testing to assess student skills in math, English, and reading. If a student needs improvement in an area, they are able to take English conversation and additional classes to succeed. All international students are strongly encouraged to prepare for study in the United States by taking standardized tests such as the SAT, TOEFL, IELTS, Eiken STEP, Cambridge ESOL, etc. Academic scholarships may be awarded to international students based on official SAT score reports.

6. Items of Interest for International Students
WWCC offers an excellent English as a Second Language (ESL) program, an active international student club, and a host family program for cultural exchange.

7. Obtain a Student Visa
Once a student’s application file is complete, WWCC will issue an acceptance letter and Form I-20. The student can then pay the $200 SEVIS fee and apply for a student visa at their local U.S. Embassy or Consulate. International students may arrive in the U.S. up to 30 days before the entry date on the Form I-20. Students should inform WWCC of their arrival date and maintain close communication with Admissions for housing check-in, orientation and registration information. Good communication will help eliminate any possible confusion or misunderstandings.
