Lake County Campus Promise

Beginning fall 2018, all first-time students will not pay fees at the Lake County Campus. The “WCC Promise” program requires new WCC students to enroll in at least 12 units as a full-time student. Students must also choose a short-term occupational certificate, university transfer preparation, or an Associate degree as their academic program of choice when enrolling at WCC. Successful fall 2018 WCC full-time Promise students who return in the spring semester of 2019 will enjoy the same free college benefit for that term as well.

Enroll Fall 2018
Beginning in the Fall 2018 semester, first-time Lake County Campus students will not pay fees when they enroll in at least 12 units and choose a program of study.


We Pay Your Fees
Since full-time California community college student fees total over $550 each semester, parents and studennts will save well over $1,000 for the 2018 fall and 2019 spring semesters.


The WCC Promise program gives students the incentive to enroll as full-time students and to continue from the first semester to the next. National research shows these student behaviors are associated with academic program completion.
